Trauma informed investigations is a critical step to managing investigation processes and direct contact in a manner that creates a psychologically safe place for all those involved in an investigation. There are misconceptions, biases, and even poor practices that can create the scenario of a person being twice victimized.

The program will cover such topics as:

  • What is trauma and who experiences it
  • Concepts of intersectionality
  • understanding and avoid bias in our work
  • Interviewing in a trauma informed manner
  • Vicarious trauma and how to protect ourselves and maintain our own mental health
