Course Information


About this Workshop

This MACHW interactive workshop series aims to support CHWs as they strive to serve their clients during these challenging times. The workshop formats will include expert panels, Q and A, and case studies on critical issues from across Massachusetts.

CHWs and Trauma Informed Care: A trauma-informed approach to care is necessary to transform health care. Working on the frontlines, Community Health Workers (CHWs) are public health professionals who simultaneously build on the strengths and resilience of themselves and the communities they serve. CHWs provide supportive care to trauma survivors across various behavioral health spectrums; including grief, loss, substance use and mental health services.

In this workshop we will learn about the impact that traumatic experiences have on individuals, families, and communities. We will also examine the parallels of caring for ourselves as we care for our clients. Finally, we will explore building a community collective that is strength-based and fosters safe and compassionate spaces that encourage resilience.


What you'll learn

At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Define trauma in their own words
  • Identify triggers and how to recognize our own traumas
  • Prevent and manage traumatic stress when it arises
