To become more trauma-informed, Resilience Works provide customized consultation and training to leadership and staff in a variety of work settings.
These may include:
- Organizational assessment
- Policy development and program review

“Through a full-day retreat, our staff was provided with a rich opportunity to acknowledge, better understand and more effectively address the impact of our work both individually and organizationally.”
—Susan Goldfarb, Director, Suffolk County Child Advocacy Center
Legal services, Legal aid, Pro-bono attorneys
Trauma exposure is experienced by staff attorneys, legal services organizations, and other legal aid offices.
Many have hired Resilience Works to run day-long retreats, trainings, and customized, short-term events that increase knowledge around trauma, build resilience, and improve team support.
Domestic violence programs
Following staff training on trauma-informed care and resilience, Leadership will frequently request additional intensive consultation.
A recent project involved all levels of staff, administration, clients and shelter residents, reviewed and revised shelter policies and integrate trauma-informed principles.
Shelters for homeless families
In the Boston-area, a request for training became an opportunity to support a new executive director in surveying staff on training and supervisory needs, and strengthening trauma-informed practices.
Using an online tool, Resilience Works was able to assess the staff needs, and to plan for leadership and staff trainings on trauma and vicarious trauma-informed services and resilience.
Further, Resilience Works offered support and guidance regarding an onsite critical incident and advice on shelter practices.
Children’s advocacy centers
Recognizing that a single day retreat provided to staff working with traumatized children was insufficient for maintaining wellness, the director requested that a monthly consultation group be available.
These on-going monthly sessions continue to provide the opportunity to integrate resilience practices into work and life.
“It’s helpful for me to learn about vicarious trauma, how it manifests, and how to cope and avoid burnout. I’ve really benefited from learning about concrete skills and strategies.”
—Staff member, Suffolk County Child Advocacy Center
