A Toolkit for Leading Through Uncertainty
For well over a decade, Wellpoint Care Network has used our own Trauma Informed Care model, the Seven Essential Ingredients, to guide our work. When the COVID-19 pandemic began, we looked to our model, along with the Neurosequential Model (NM™), to help us make sense of the world around us during a time of unprecedented stress and collective trauma.
Experience has shown us that when leaders practice compassion, it has obvious benefits to those they serve, but is also self-sustaining during times of prolonged stress. This is what drove our Trauma Informed Care training staff to develop a toolkit to support leaders navigating prolonged stress and great uncertainty.
Best Practice Put to Work (and Home)
The Compassion Curve represents how we engage the people we serve, act compassionately with each other and our families, as well as demonstrate compassion for the community. You don’t need to be a human services professional to use it; it works in our personal lives and with co-workers. These toolkits were built to be adaptive and relevant.
