On this podcast we cover everything from operational resilience to personal trauma. But something I’ve never covered before is the concept of having a trauma informed crisis lead. Not familiar with the term? Fortunately, today’s guest knows all about it.
Hello everyone, welcome to episode 63 - as the Resilience Think Tank presents the Resilient Journey podcast! Today I’m joined by trauma response specialist Treena Reilkoff.
Treena explains what it means to be trauma informed and what we should be expecting from our crisis leaders and what leaders should be looking for in their people during an incident.
We’ll talk about trauma triggers and how scripting your own response can be a helpful tool when navigating a crisis – and how scripting can help children cope with traumatic events.
And near the end, Treena tells a fascinating story of how she dealt with a bully who pointed a gun at her son’s head.
Be sure to follow The Resilient Journey! We sure do appreciate it!
