Webinar: Building a Culture of Human Resilience Within Organizations for Climate-Enhanced Traumas and Toxic Stresses

Thursday | April 20, 2017 | 12:00 pm — 1:00 pm

Online Event

The ability of any individual to successful cope with and use climate change-enhanced adversities as transformational catalysts to learn, grow, and increase wellbeing is significantly influenced by their social surroundings. The organizations people work for or associate with are some of the key social determinants of human resilience. Like individuals, without good knowledge, skills, principles, and policies, organizations can become “trauma-organized” by climate-enhanced shocks and toxic stresses. This means they adopt explicit and implicit mechanisms intended to protect themselves from threats, but which instead further traumatize and diminish the safety, health, and wellbeing of employees, clients, and stakeholders. Becoming a trauma-informed human resilience-enhancing organization is the key to preventing and resolving these issues. This webinar will describe different methods to help organizations transition to human resilience-building social systems.
