Trauma comes in many forms, with clients who have grown up with abuse, homelessness, war or experienced psychological or physical shocks. As more clients come to career services with a history of trauma, it is essential that career practitioners have the tangible tools to work effectively with these individuals. Over the course of these three webinars we will look at the impacts of trauma on career development, the ways we create trauma-informed spaces and strategies for trauma-informed dialogues with clients. Participants will learn to recognize the signs and signals of trauma, and guide clients from self-identity to job search.
