TAVA September Meeting & Workshop

Within the multitude of capacities and domains that volunteers serve they are often exposed to clients and service recipients who have experienced some measure of traumatization. It’s imperative that volunteers are trained with the principles and practices of trauma informed approaches, in order to safeguard their well being and that of the individuals they are serving. Such measures also serve to build capacity and resiliency within organizations at large that are dependent on volunteer engagement for their day to day operations. Session participants will:
  • Learn to identify the expressions and effects of Trauma
  • Learn to apply the principles and practices of Trauma Informed Approaches to prevent retraumatization of clients
  • Learn to recognize and manage the impact of trauma on volunteers
Rami Shami has been serving in Hospice Palliative Care for nearly 3 decades. He feels privileged to have served with a multitude of Hospices and currently applies his skill and experience as a Consultant as well as Case Manager for the Second Mile Club at Kensington Health, and Multicultural Outreach Coordinator for Lighthouse for Grieving Children. While harvesting a conviction that everyone should have access to quality Hospice Palliative Care, Rami strongly advocates and intimately supports the development and growth of programs and services for those travelling the journey of a life-limiting illness, their caregivers, and those who are bereaved.
