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 development practitioners have the tangible tools to work effectively with these individuals. This in-depth workshop will provide you with information about trauma-informed career development practice and will focus on approaches to work with clients in trauma-informed ways, including how to create trauma-informed spaces and strategies for trauma-informed dialogues. Participants will leave the workshop with tools they can use in their work the following day.

The workshop is not intended to make career professionals competent to diagnose trauma; however, it is designed to assist participants in identifying the signs and signals for clients with a trauma history.

Learning outcomes:
  • Demonstrate knowledge of trauma impacts on career development;
  • Demonstrate an understanding of trauma-informed career development practice;
  • Practice techniques for dosing the career development interventions and conversations;
  • Learn concrete strategies for working with clients with trauma backgrounds
