Trauma Informed Care Workshop

People often survive trauma that we are unaware of. And these people need support and understanding from those around them. Well-meaning people sometimes re-traumatize survivors, and trauma can affect the individual, families, friendships, work, and even communities.

In addition to the initial trauma, Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) such as abuse, neglect, and family dysfunction, can change brain development and responses to stress, and may lead to health consequences, including early death.  

Whether you are clergy, a member of a pastoral care team, a teacher, a leader, or simply a compassionate person, it is likely you will encounter survivors daily. During this workshop we will learn how to create empowering, physically and emotionally safe spaces for survivors, particularly those who have survived ACEs.
