I am looking for resources regarding trauma-informed care training or systems change in non-human services workplace. Also trauma-informed management outside of human services work. This project is specifically working with shipyard employees at a major shipping port. Anyone know of any resources that could provide some guidance? Or have experience working with a similar workplace community which is quite outside-the-box for most of our typical TIC work? Realizing that this male-dominated blue-collar workplace might not intuitively be receptive to the touchy-feely social-worky content of a typical TIC training.
So far, thoughts include:
- of course, getting to know the culture and climate of the workplace to bridge cultural gaps
- maybe some focus groups to find out points of receptivity
- Emphasizing TI management which can improve workforce productivity, retention, and sustainability (the whats-in-it-for-me)
Thanks in advance for any thoughts or resources
