Engaging the 12 Sectors in Cultivating a Trauma-Informed Community

Monday, July 15th
4:00 PM - 5:30 PM
Grapevine 4-6

A multi-sectoral team of four individuals was selected to participate in the 2019 National Leadership Academy for the Public’s Health through the Center for Health Leadership & Practice, a program of the Public Health Institute and CDC. This team has gained invaluable individual and team-based skills and knowledge through this opportunity as they collaborate to foster a trauma-informed Kankakee County. This presentation will include a panel discussion that identifies the leadership skills and team-based approach needed to address a transformational population health project that addresses health equity and social determinants of health. Participants will walk away from this presentation with ideas of how to identify their own strengths and weaknesses as leaders, and how to build a strong multi-sectoral team that can successfully address challenging public health issues. Building on momentum of the Trauma-Free Illinois Initiative, the team will also share strategies on how to create community buy-in for effective dispersion of trauma-informed care to the diverse sectors in the community setting.

At the end of the training session, the participants will be able to: 

1. Become familiar with tools and resources to identify and build their own leadership style.
2. Have increased knowledge of how to build a successful multi-sectoral team.
3. List activities to build trauma-informed care in their own communities.

All presentations that have been made available to CADCA have been posted at this time.

Sessions without presentations were not made available to CADCA to share.

As a reminder, the password to access the presentations has emailed to participants and is also available on your Program Cover.
