About this course

Increasingly, organizations are looking for trauma-informed workplace investigations, but what does this really mean? This course goes beyond the “buzzword” by exploring the ways in which trauma might impact every aspect of an investigation and an investigator’s ability to collect the best possible evidence from participants without the risk of re-traumatization.

If someone indicates that they have experienced trauma, where should you start? Do you have to wait for someone to indicate that they have experienced trauma? Does it only affect specific steps in the investigation? Is it a specific methodology/checklist that must be used? These are a few of the questions that are answered in this advanced course that takes participants through the fundamental elements of approaching every workplace investigation from a trauma-informed perspective.

This training will also discuss common mistakes investigators should avoid, as well as typical challenges they might expect to face when conducting a trauma-informed workplace investigation. Additionally, it looks at important information investigators need to be aware of to ensure that they remain fit to tackle this difficult, yet critical work.

What you'll learn

  • What is trauma? – definitions; types of trauma; potential impact(s); its effect on the brain and memory.
  • A trauma-informed approach – dispelling myths; key objectives; governing principles; benefits.
  • How to prepare for and conduct interviews – including considerations to take into account; steps to take; how to frame questions.
  • How trauma affects credibility assessments.
  • How to write a trauma-informed report – including writing with non-blaming statements and the importance of precise language.
  • Potential challenges to expect & mistakes to avoid – including what to do when faced with signs of trauma; the difference between trauma-informed and victim/survivor-centered approaches.
  • Important information for investigators – identifying and addressing burnout, secondary traumatic stress, vicarious trauma, and/or compassion fatigue.

Participants will also have the opportunity to experience role-plays of trauma-informed investigation interviews and to engage in practical, interactive exercises.

About this course

Increasingly, organizations are looking for trauma-informed workplace investigations, but what does this really mean? This course goes beyond the “buzzword” by exploring the ways in which trauma might impact every aspect of an investigation and an investigator’s ability to collect the best possible evidence from participants without the risk of re-traumatization.

If someone indicates that they have experienced trauma, where should you start? Do you have to wait for someone to indicate that they have experienced trauma? Does it only affect specific steps in the investigation? Is it a specific methodology/checklist that must be used? These are a few of the questions that are answered in this advanced course that takes participants through the fundamental elements of approaching every workplace investigation from a trauma-informed perspective.

This training will also discuss common mistakes investigators should avoid, as well as typical challenges they might expect to face when conducting a trauma-informed workplace investigation. Additionally, it looks at important information investigators need to be aware of to ensure that they remain fit to tackle this difficult, yet critical work.

What you'll learn

  • What is trauma? – definitions; types of trauma; potential impact(s); its effect on the brain and memory.
  • A trauma-informed approach – dispelling myths; key objectives; governing principles; benefits.
  • How to prepare for and conduct interviews – including considerations to take into account; steps to take; how to frame questions.
  • How trauma affects credibility assessments.
  • How to write a trauma-informed report – including writing with non-blaming statements and the importance of precise language.
  • Potential challenges to expect & mistakes to avoid – including what to do when faced with signs of trauma; the difference between trauma-informed and victim/survivor-centered approaches.
  • Important information for investigators – identifying and addressing burnout, secondary traumatic stress, vicarious trauma, and/or compassion fatigue.

Participants will also have the opportunity to experience role-plays of trauma-informed investigation interviews and to engage in practical, interactive exercises.
