About the Presenter:

Lori Duzan is a licensed professional counselor with a long history of working in the non-profit mental health sector.  In the past twenty years, Lori has held a variety of positions including therapist, supervisor, and director which have afforded her opportunities to approach issues from a variety of systemic angles.

In 2018, Lori launched her own LLC, Flow Clinical Consulting, in response to a recognized community need for additional consultative and training resources for individuals and organizations providing community mental health services. Lori also works part-time as a mental health therapist and consultant at QUEST Counseling and Consultation Center in Madison.

In the last decade, a common theme in all positions has been her dedication to trauma-informed care, not just as this relates to direct service, but also as this relates to organizational development. Lori has dedicated much time and energy to helping teams and organizations embody the trauma-informed values of safety, trustworthiness, collaboration, choice, and empowerment and to actively demonstrate these values in key areas.  This led to an interest in staff member’s quality of professional life, including building compassion satisfaction and preventing and addressing compassion fatigue.  She believes strongly in the use of a reflective supervisory approach to enhance the experience and success of enrolled participants, staff members, and organizations.
