This is the second package in the Trauma-Informed Approach in Adolescent Health: Team Meeting Series. This meeting package includes a suggested agenda and resources to help you facilitate team conversations about the journey from trauma-aware to trauma-informed. These conversations will help identify program strengths and opportunities for improving the use of trauma-informed approaches.

While this meeting package is intended to be used in a group setting, team members could complete all or some activities independently (e.g., watching the video), depending on the team’s unique needs. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe the journey from trauma-aware to trauma-informed
  • Explore where a program, organization, and/or network is currently located on the journey
  • Identify program, organization, and/or network strengths and opportunities for improvement
  • Select at least one resource to learn more about or use in future meetings

To prepare for the meeting:

  • Have a computer set up to view the meeting package and play the video for everyone to watch together. Or share during a virtual meeting.
  • Make sure all team members have copies of the journey and checklist/discussion questions.
