On November 27, 2018, the SW Ohio Provider Transformation Support Network sponsored “Supporting Employment and Community Life Engagement Using Trauma Responsive Approaches,” an introduction to the concept and practice. During the training, we developed ideas for “deep dives” around subjects and ideas that were mentioned. These 4 trainings are the “deep dives,” and will again be facilitated by Colleen Mercuri, MSW, LISW-S. Each session is specifically designed for providers supporting individuals in day and pre-vocational programs, and through employment services, with a focus on community integration.
