Reply to "The Business Case for becoming Trauma-Informed"

Hey Ellen,

In Johnson City I've been involved since 2015 in the development of a Community wide trauma informed system of care that now has law enforcement, educators, healthcare, mental health, foster care, 2 universities and more involved.  I've been researching the work piece and unable to find a lot of data but that doesn't mean it's out there - because I'd like to include a business owner, manager, etc. piece in our system of care.

I met last week with one of our local Chambers to see about a training for workforce in 2019 to which they were most receptive.  We've used a 4 hour SAMHSA training for educating our community and last winter when I developed a 4 hour POST Certified training for police officers included a segment on "self-care" and using the Professional Quality of Life Scale.  This assessment tool will allow officers to gauge how well they are handling the stress of the job to avoid PTSD.  I'm in discussion with Ballad Health about the possible implementation of this tool for their workforce as well.  I'd welcome a conversation with you about this if you'd like to contact me at becky.haas@balladhealth.org 

My best to you on your continued efforts in this field.  I totally agree that there's a need
