Organizational Wellness Services

A Thousand Joys knows that every organization comes with its own unique set of needs and challenges. We specialize in helping community mental health agencies and other human service organizations to fulfill their missions by providing trauma-informed, resilience-focused training and organizational development services. Our services help organizations to strengthen their capacity to ensure the empowerment, needs and positive outcomes of trauma survivors, while supporting the professional growth and wellbeing of their staff. When agencies are healthy and thriving, the benefits to the children and families they serve, increases exponentially.

Professional Development Training

ATJ trainings support the professional growth of your leaders and staff, and develop their capacity to work effectively as a team. Organizations can opt in for a single training or build a sequence of trainings that are customized to meet the individual needs of your team. Some topics include:

  • Trauma-Informed Practices for Sustainability & Efficacy
  • Self-Care: Promoting Wellness and Resiliency in the Workplace
  • Leadership Development Program
  • Effective Communication: Active Listening & Powerful Patterns of Speech
  • Self-Awareness
  • People Management
  • Performance Management
  • Team Building
More present and engaged employees make more healthy and productive workspaces.

Retreats

Our retreats offer leaders and staff the opportunity to engage in self and community care. Too often helpers put the needs of others first and find themselves depleted, facing the realities of burnout and vicarious trauma. Our self-care retreats are designed to help each individual to create a strong body and mind that supports their consistent wellbeing and sustainability.
Via mind-body and reflective exercises, helpers raise awareness of habitual patterns that prevent self-care, while building skills that activate healthy boundaries and practices that can be taken into the workplace. We can customize anywhere from a one-day to a week-long retreat.

Leadership Coaching

For those leaders who want a more intense and personal growth experience, A Thousand Joys offers an individualized coaching series focused on raising awareness of leadership patterns, increasing a leader’s emotional agility and ability to navigate change and communicate effectively. Organizations frequently pair coaching with training and retreats to maximize impact and growth.

Trauma-Informed Care Consultation & Implementation

ATJ supports organizations that are committed to developing a trauma-informed framework throughout their agency. In addition to providing trauma-informed coaching and training, ATJ consults with organizations to create wellness-friendly policies, procedures and treatment choices. The result is agencies that provide high-quality, trauma-sensitive services designed to accelerate healing and restore personal power and health.
