Event: Building Trauma Informed Organisations – 12th June

Fife Trauma Group are holding the following event which is free to attend and open to anyone working in Fife-based services:

We’re all in this together: building trauma informed organisations to create a fairer Fife

Wednesday 12th June, The Bay Hotel, Kinghorn

A lot of work has been happening across Fife to raise awareness of the impact of psychological trauma on people’s lives, health and wellbeing. But what does this mean for the way that we work and for our organisations? What changes to individual practice and to systems are needed to give people better experiences of services and better outcomes? This one-day conference aims to:

• build shared understanding of the impact of psychological trauma and the need for all organisations to be trauma informed
• consider the steps we need to take to build trauma informed organisations
• explore staff wellbeing / care
• create connection and encourage collaboration
• provide help and support to practitioners working with trauma

Speakers include Karyn McCluskey, Chief Executive of Community Justice Scotland, who helped establish the Scottish Violence Reduction Unit in 2005.

“Sometimes when we consider the complexity of society and the tremendous challenges it offers us, it can feel overwhelming. Deprivation, homelessness, crime, disease – organisations, processes and plans can seem like feeble tools in the face of such insurmountable problems…. But although it may not feel like it, we are always being presented with the opportunity to make real change – the trick is to recognise and seize it. And when that means changing the destiny of some of the most excluded in society, improving outcomes for them, their children and their children’s children, we must all rise to the challenge.” (Karyn McCluskey)

The conference is free to attend and open to anyone working in Fife-based services.
