Trauma Informed Career Development Practice

CFCC 1070 - Trauma Informed Career Development Practice

This workshop is an evidence-based program that reflects current trauma research. It provides career development professionals with informed skills and strategies to identify challenges, along with tangible tools to work effectively with individuals who have a history of trauma and are engaging in career development. It will also include discussions on COVID-19 and collective trauma.

This workshop is not intended to train CDPs to diagnose trauma in their clients.  It is intended to provide CDPs with the tools they need to work with clients who may have a history of trauma and who are engaging in Career Development activities.
