Date November 8, 2022
Time 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EST

Faces & Voices of Recovery invites professionals in the state of Indiana to attend a FREE virtual training. In conjunction with the State of Indiana we are excited to bring you this training about the importance of being trauma-informed.

Through an initiative funded by the Indiana Division of Mental Health and Addiction, Faces & Voices is providing incentives in the amount of $2,000 to recovery organizations in Indiana. To be eligible, organizations must have completed the statewide RCO Assessment Survey and have received their Technical Assistance Plan with a letter of verification from the National Recovery Institute and attend at least six NRI Trainings funded by the Indiana Division of Mental Health and Addiction. For any questions, please reach out to Krissi Jacob, kjacob@facesandvoicesofrecovery.org

Trauma-Informed Recovery is a training session that dives into explaining the ways trauma shapes people. Traumatic experiences can dramatically alter people’s lives, and subsequently, perspectives. Understanding the ways that trauma can impact people and shape their perspectives is crucial. This training is essential for anyone working with vulnerable populations.

As Recovery Support Service Providers, we are not immune to the effects of stress and secondary trauma. Many people who have chosen to work in this field have experiential expertise in trauma and this empowers individuals to use their own experiences as a guiding framework for understanding how to extend compassion and empathy to others. Session-goers will walk away from this training with the skills necessary to create healthy boundaries, develop a concrete self-care plan & learn the risks of not being trauma-informed.

Nyla cultivates pathways connecting image, content, visibility, context, and representation- bridges of understanding. She believes culture is the inter-connective tissue that bonds people in a shared mission and a common journey.

As VP Strategic Relationships at pocstock, she assists ally organizations in bringing voices and perspectives of the diverse BIPOC community into their core business ideals both externally and internally. Making real and genuine impact as an ally enriches our global community. That’s an IDEA (Inclusion, Diversity, Equity & Acceptance) worth prioritizing. She knows that inclusion-stigma free inclusion- means that we all have a say, in what we all say. Pouring back into community is her own personal liberation strategy.
