Peer Review Updates Training
Facilitated by ICADV Program Coordinator Jessica Marcum Jacobs and Peer Review Consultant Terri Noone

ICADV is hosting regional trainings for the new 2014-2016 Peer Review Standards. Participants in the training will learn about the new standards, as well as be trained as peer review team members. All agencies are required to have two trained staff members prepared to participate in review teams conducting peer review visits.  Since there are several significant changes to the standards, which take effect July 1, 2014, programs are encouraged to send as many key staff as possible to one of the six regional trainings.

Trauma Informed Services Training Series, Level THREE
Various dates and locations
Presented by Dr Carla Gaff Clark
This training, Level Three of the Trauma Informed Care series, will focus heavily on advocates and the stress and trauma they experience while working in this field. Secondary trauma is commonly referred to as “the stress resulting from helping or wanting to help a traumatized or suffering person”. It is psychological phenomenon in which the caregiver experiences many of the common feelings and symptoms associated with victimization.  Secondary Trauma Stress (STS) can affect all aspects of one’s life: cognitive, emotional, behavioral, spiritual, interpersonal and physical.

Why should organizations be concerned about secondary trauma and its’ impact on their staff?

The costs of recruiting, hiring and training new staff are significant. Secondary trauma is a contributing factor to turnover. Turnover brings down staff morale, increases the workload of remaining staff, results in poor continuity of care for children and families, and prevents organizations from forming a high functioning and cohesive workforce. In addition, the quality and quantity of a staff member’s work may suffer if they have been secondarily traumatized and do not receive assistance.

The training is free and will offer CEUs through the Indiana Professional Licensing Bureau.
