Connecting and Strengthening Workforce Series  
In our efforts to promote workforce, TPCA strives to connect people and strengthen strategies that will help people develop their skills for business success. In essence, the “Connecting and Strengthening Workforce” Series will introduce employees to strategies that will make them more productive in the workplace which will benefit employees and employers alike. Workforce Development is not a one-off training, it is a continuous process of educating and equipping employees to face the challenges of tomorrow. This series will feature sessions that provide strategies on employee retention and recruitment, as well as promoting career well-being within the workplace.

Session ONE - Avoiding Burnout and Activating Stress Management Strategies
Tuesday, June 22, 2021 from 10 - 11 am Central 

Clinical Staff (NP, PA, RN, LPN), Care Coordinators

Job burnout occurs for several reasons. Everyone experiences work stress in a variety of different ways; however, it is the way these stressors are managed that contributes to maintaining healthy work-life balance. How is stress different from burnout?  This session will provide attendees with the tools to combat stress and burnout in rural health environments and develop strategies for achieving well-being at work.
Participants will learn to identify three burnout symptoms and stressors, what burnout does to life and work balance, list three stress triggers, and how to combat them with four preventative strategies.   

Speaker: Dr. Desireè Kelly, Workforce Strategies & Evaluations Manager, TPCA
Session TWO - Grief in the Workplace — When It's Not Business as Usual
Tuesday, June 29, 2021 from 10 - 11 am Central | REGISTER

Clinical Staff, Front Desk, Schedulers, and Referral Management, Care Coordinators, Case Managers, Outreach, Navigators, and CHWs

Grieving for someone who has passed away can be one of life's most painful experiences. It is likely to take a toll on one's emotional and physical health. Unhealthy thoughts and feelings will trigger sadness and even tears in the workplace when you are least expecting it, no matter how diligent you try to suppress them.
Feelings of grief and loss can be accompanied by feelings of guilt, anger, uncertainty, denial, regret, and other strong emotions. Do you know that there is no right way to grieve, so the decision is yours, and you should do what is best for you in your moments of sadness? Our grief is influenced by our personal experiences, and different workplace cultures may affect how we grieve and how we experience loss. 
Participants will learn about the dynamics of grief and loss, identify ways grief occurs in the workplace, discuss strategies for supporting oneself and others during grief, and get access to resources. 

Speaker: Marcello Scalzo, Community Relationship Manager, Alive Hospice
Moderator: Dr. Desireè Kelly, Workforce Strategies and Evaluation Manager, TPCA
Session THREE - Taking a Trauma-Informed Approach to Workplace Success in Rural Communities 
Tuesday, July 8, 2021 from 10 – 11:15 am Central | REGISTER

Audience: Clinical Staff, Quality Improvement, EMP Personnel, Front Desk, Schedulers, and Referral Management, Care Coordinators, Oral Health

A trauma-informed organization is one in which the individual and the organization recognize trauma, and determines complementary work practices that support health systems, staff, and resilience practices. As trauma occurs, the existing protective factors are often challenged. 
In order to implement trauma-informed care in health organizations, it is important to understand and discuss in detail secondary trauma treatment practices. Participants will identify action items and strategies to implement immediately, as well as a list of strategies to stop and start.

Speaker: Elizabeth Guroff, MA, LCMFT, Director, Practice Improvement & Consulting, National Council for Behavioral Health
