Program evaluation is an applied form of research that can facilitate organizational, program, policy or project improvement. As traumatic stress can be triggered by and/or caused by organizational systems and the people that work within them, it is important to integrate a trauma-informed lens to program evaluation in an effort to minimize (re)traumatization and create safer environments.
This introductory webinar will examine how trauma-informed principles map on to forming evaluation teams, developing questions, and collecting, analyzing, interpreting and communicating data. The webinar will review systemic trauma and provide examples of how specific program evaluation methods can be adapted to support improving, creating and maintaining trauma-informed organizations.
This Webinar is FREE for Ontario Registered Social Workers (RSW), Registered Social Service Workers (RSSW) and Students of Social Work and Social Service Work Programs. Please note: If you are not an RSW, RSSW or student of these programs in Ontario, you may still attend but will be charged a nominal fee of $20.
When ASL interpretation is required, please indicate the preference in the registration form. The incorporation of ASL interpreters will depend on availability.
