Hot Topics — Trauma-Informed Change Management
One year into the COVID-19 pandemic, public health organizations are still responding to this prolonged crisis, which has impacted—and sometimes traumatized—each member of the workforce in unique ways.

The April session of Hot Topics in Practice, which will be the series’ 200th episode, considers how public health organizations can navigate change in the face of disclosed or undisclosed trauma experienced by staff. The presentation will cover three critical stages of change, how to identify and prevent risks and barriers associated with change initiatives, and how to identify and manage trauma throughout the change lifecycle.

Leading dynamic organizations through any type of change is difficult, and it's even harder when employees are experiencing high levels of emotional distress. Register today to learn strategies for leading transformational change during trying times.

In conjunction with the Hot Topics in Practice 200th episode anniversary, NWCPHP is releasing a new resource to help workforce specialists and educators develop effective, engaging, and inclusive webinars for public health learning. Join this session for a sneak preview of the toolkit.

Note: Live webinar attendance will be capped at 500 audience members and admittance is on a first-come basis. If you miss the live webinar, don’t forget that recordings of all our Hot Topics webinars are available on our free e-learning portal. Find out more at https://phlearnlink.nwcphp.org. An email reminder with a link to this month’s Hot Topics recording will be sent out after the webinar.

Closed captioning will be available during the webinar.
