Trauma-Informed Corrections Care: Day Two

December 13, 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 2 will discuss the impact of dual trauma survivors (officers and inmates), understanding the power differential and toxic stress, and how trauma interplays between inmates and officers to increase the tension and challenges of life within jail or prison, as well as probation and parole. Explores strategies to shift the interactions between corrections deputies and parole/probation officers and the supervisees under their purview from adversarial to collaborative.
