What is meant by trauma informed services and how should libraries be involved? This webinar will explore the effects of trauma on society and how libraries are directly impacted by the trauma and stress carried by the communities they serve. Additionally we’ll cover information about a Mental Health First Aid training program and how it applies to library services. Finding awareness of the effects of trauma on our community leads to more compassion and allows us to dive into our own problem solving skills more effectively. Presenter Elissa Hardy will provide resources and real life examples, as well as discuss the importance of creating a self-care plan for library staff. This webinar was presented January 25, 2017.
