Professional Staff Development & Training
The Ladipo Group provides high quality, culturally relevant programming to agencies and organizations. We recognize that staff needs sufficient support and training in order to provide the best service and care to their consumers. Staff training is a cost-effective way of ensuring quality services.
How We’re Different
Real World Application – We are exceptional at giving practical information and the concrete tools that consumers and staff need. Our curriculum are designed to provide in-depth information that is used on an ongoing basis.
Professional Development Training Topics:
- Burnout Prevention & Vicarious Trauma
- Cultural Competency, Isms and More: When Staff Differ from the People They Serve – watch our Lead Trainer Lee Carson, LSW discuss why Cultural Competency is critical for staff and companies
- Trauma-Informed Services – Understanding the Sanctuary Model: Implementing Safety, Emotion, Loss, Future (S.E.L.F.) Techniques
- Cultural Competency: Working with the LGBTQ Communities

- Our workshops and trainings can be customized and tailored to your specific needs
Clinical Supervision and Consultation
Oftentimes resources limit the therapeutic and clinical support that staff receives. Clinical consultation is a cost-effect way to meet this need. Our licensed mental health professionals conduct clinical consultation and case review for provider agencies on an ongoing basis.
Listen to our Director of Training Lee Carson talk about diversity, social constructs, and microaggressions.
What is your why? – Diversity and Cultural Competency

“The Ladipo Group trainings we have received have been an incredible boon to our ability to reach our staff through high quality professional development. Ladipo Group presenters are well-prepared, engaging, and honest about what it takes to “do hard work” in the community. Our staff have felt supported, understood, and respected. As a Director, I have noticed staff using shared language and shared experiences from the trainings to build connections with each other and develop a supportive peer group that challenges all team members to keep working better and harder, using their new skills. The staff we employ, as well as the clients we work with, represent a broad and diverse range of professional and personal experiences. The Ladipo Group has given us opportunities to share those experiences with each other and build a stronger, more trauma informed, nurturing workplace!”Director of Residential Non-Profit with $8M+ budget
