How can and do regulators regulate in a trauma-informed way? In this interactive workshop, attendees will learn about and critically examine what it means and looks like to use trauma-informed, human-centered approaches in professional regulation.

Take a deep dive into trauma-informed practices in professional regulation. Attendees will be equipped with knowledge, skills, and tools to apply and enhance trauma-informed practice in their work. While certain content will be framed in relation to particular regulatory functions, it will be possible for attendees to extrapolate insights to apply to other regulatory areas.
