This offering will be in an immersive retreat-style learning environment that will allow us to unplug and dip our toe into various research around the psychology, neuroscience, and developmental science of trauma.

Over the course of three days, you will walk away with a working knowledge of:

Type 1 Trauma

Type 2 Trauma

Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs)

Polyvagal Theory, and
Developmental Trauma.

In addition, you will begin to establish an embodied understanding of how trauma operates in the relational dynamics of life and work, and explore practices to better recognize, attune to, and respond to trauma in the workplace. Additionally, this offering allocates time for participants to connect with colleagues, reflect on how they encounter trauma, and cultivate several resourcing practices (ie. yoga, breathwork, meditation, etc) to regulate their nervous system.

We believe these resourcing practices are critical for dealing with burnout, compassion fatigue, vicarious trauma, and other health factors that are prevalent in our field. We believe that being trauma-informed is a journey, not a destination, and it starts within.

Becoming Trauma-informed is a call to action to show up for ourselves and those we serve in a way that can be more effective, align with our humanity, and adheres to professional standards and protocols.
