Field Instructor Orientation
Resiliency-Focused and Trauma Informed Field Instruction
Please download the Field Instructor Orientation presentation to learn more about the program and the responsibilities.
Providing support to those who have experienced trauma exposes helpers to traumatic stress. The supervisory relationship is an important tool that fosters resiliency, well-being, compassion and ultimately positive outcomes for those served. This workshop will explore the field instructor-student relationship and specific strategies that field instructors and students can use to promote resiliency. This workshop will be useful to workers as well as those in supervisory and leadership roles.
As a result of this course, you will be able to:
- Identify the impact of secondary traumatic stress and vicarious trauma on those who provide services to individuals who have experienced trauma
- Outline how the functional areas of supervision: education, support administrative are related to specific assumptions of trauma informed practice
- Explore strategies that can be used within the supervisory relationship to develop resilience, well-being and satisfaction with work.
