Trauma Informed Workplaces

CPHR Manitoba and ACHIEVE Centre for Leadership & Workplace Performance have partnered to present this workshop.

Trauma is prevalent in our world and has an impact on many of the people we interact with, including our clients and colleagues. Trauma informed approaches are essential to providing effective services and building healthy workplaces.
