A resource to drive organisational change, guide leaders, ensure quality improvement and enhance consumer and carer safety and experience of services.
Following on from our Trauma-Informed Care and Practice Organisational Toolkit, the Trauma-Informed Leadership for Organisational Change: A Framework, is an easy-to-use resource to drive organisational change and a valuable guide for leaders. This resource ensures quality improvement with the ultimate goal of enhancing consumer and carer/supporter safety and experience.
Our vision is that mental health and human services leaders will be supported by a skilled and competent workforce, demonstrating best practice in all service settings.
This resource assumes a thorough knowledge of trauma, an ability to integrate theory into practice and an understanding of the principles that underpin a trauma-informed care and practice approach as fundamental to recovery-orientation in mental health and human services.
