Together Georgia Provider Alliance in collaboration with The University of Georgia J. W. Fanning Institute for Leadership Development offers the following training.  By the nature of their work, child welfare professionals are at particular risk for developing secondary traumatic stress symptoms. This session examines the causes of secondary trauma, its effects on staff, treatment methods for working with clients to address their trauma responses, and more. 

Mission vs. Margin

Thursday, December 8, 2016, 10:00am - 2:00pm  
Program Description: Leaders and decision makers often walk a fine line between implementing their agency’s mission and the need to sustain a successful business model. Too much focus on one or the other often results in frustrated or burned out staff and administrators. In this session, participants will explore how to achieve and or maintain a critical balance that keeps the doors open and the mission alive!
Goals/Learning Outcomes:
- Identify the things that deflate the energy of both management and staff as they engage in the agencies mission and/or margin
- Explore reengagement and revitalization methods for both staff and administrators
- Identify successful models for achieving both mission and margin
