Guest Presenter:
Pat Vivian, MA

Pat Vivian is a consultant in private practice in Seattle. Over the past 35 years she has worked with hundreds of nonprofit organizations and coalitions across the United States. Pat’s practice explores ways an organization’s work influences its culture and focuses on helping nonprofits recover and heal from trauma. With her compassion, insight, honesty, and positive energy, Pat’s consulting is particularly meaningful and relevant to organizations that work with traumatized individuals, groups, and communities or to organizations that have suffered trauma directly. She and her colleague Shana Hormann published, Organizational Trauma and Healing, in 2013 and have also published other articles in journals and books.

Training Objectives:

  • Understand the connection between individual staff resilience and organizational resilience.
  • Gain skills in self-care and contributing to organizational resilience.
  • Understand the breadth of a trauma-informed approach (to include survivors, self, co-workers, organizational culture).
  • Expand ability to be in healing relationships with survivors by improving individual staff’s well-being and supportive cohesion among direct service staff.
