The Transformational Resilience Safe Haven Workshop is cosponsored by: Cascadia Behavioral Healthcare, City of Portland Department of Planning and Sustainability, City of Portland Bureau of Emergency Management, Clackamas County Health, Housing, and Human Services, Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon, Multnomah County Department of Mental Health and Addiction, Mulnomah County Office of Emergency Management, Multnomah County Department of Aging and Disabilities Services, Multnomah County Office of Sustainability, & The Resource Innovation Group. Workshop Description: To cope and thrive in the midst of stress and trauma, including the direct and indirect adversities generated by climate change, organizations and communities need to become psychological and emotional Safe Havens for employees and stakeholders. Yet, many organizations react to adversity by unconsciously adopting self-protective mechanisms that further stress and traumatize people. The Safe Haven Transformational Resilience workshop will help senior and mid-level executives from public, private, and non-profit organizations understand the differences between a "trauma-organized" and "resilience-enhancing" organization and assess the degree to which their organization is trauma-organized. Using the Sanctuary Model as a guide, the principles and practices of resilience-enhancing organizations will then be explained. Participants will then learn how to develop and implement systems-based change strategies and develop a customized strategy to transition their organization to a resilience-enhancing Safe-Haven. The one-day workshop is only $95.
