Trauma dynamics: individuals and organizations

How does one provide services when trauma is operating in an organization? One of the primary impacts of “trauma” is the reduction of capacity and of resiliency. This session will address trauma with the goal of increasing your understanding of what is trauma; primary considerations to take into account when trauma in an organization is operating; and some of the dynamics of how trauma impacts individuals and systems.

We will also look at ways trauma enters an organization and "levels" of trauma and how that affects your support of the organization including some important dos and don’ts. The plan is to have this session include discussion and time for your questions. Working with trauma also impact practitioners and will be included in the evenings conversation.

Trainings on Trauma Mark has recently conducted for professionals and organizations include sessions for the: Federal Office of Civil rights; Mediators at King County Dispute Resolution Center and Washington Home Health Care Association Statewide Conference.

Mark Sideman has a long history of working within the field of trauma intervention. In 2014 he completed the three year trauma intervention training program initiated by Peter Levine and his Somatic Experience Institute.

He spent 15 years with the Division of Children and Family services providing direct services and developing and delivering training programs to individuals, families, and systems that were trauma engaged. Mark has worked with street youth and runaways as well as being a therapist in an intensive day treatment for sexually and emotionally abused pre-school children. Mark’s background includes being an autism special education teacher.
