Trauma-Informed Corrections Care: Day One

December 11, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

This 3-part series provides a detailed understanding of trauma and the various types trauma individuals experience. Sessions will explore the impact of secondary/vicarous trauma on corrections staff by examining the various ways exposure to traumatic events impacts the individual, the work they do, and the individuals they engage with on a daily basis. This series also explores what is needed to establish a trauma-informed organization, the impact of stigma and bias, and finishes with the interplay of two groups of trauma survivors – corrections staff, inmates, and/or parole/probation supervisees – and strategies to mitigate or reduce trauma activation potential among staff and those they supervise for more successful overall outcomes.

Session 1 will discuss mass incarceration and a “lay of the land” overview for justice-involved people of color. The subcultures of incarceration, urban and historical trauma and its relation to Trauma-Informed Corrections Care,  and the impact on recidivism and recovery for reentering citizens will also be discussed.
