Welcome to the first educational episode of The Self Care Unit! Today, Sarah and Carley are joined by Dr. JaQuinda Jackson. Dr. Jackson is a licensed trauma-focused therapist, who specializes in trauma informed therapy, as well as mental health performance training. With our goal of learning more about her field of expertise, Dr. Jackson walks us through both the basics of trauma, as well as the issues that nurses and healthcare professionals face when dealing with the trauma in the workplace.
How can we better support nurses and possibly alleviate the trauma they face on a regular basis? How can those in positions of power put better structures in place to help their teams? What has changed or improved as more and more of us become informed about trauma? Dr. Jackson is an invaluable resource for anyone looking to learn more about trauma, how it affects us, and what we can do about it, so we are so grateful she joined us for this insightful conversation!
If our listeners would like to learn more about her or even utilize her services, you can find her on Instagram @dr_jaquinda_jackson or at her website www.jacksonconsultingsllc.com.
