Stress and Trauma-Informed Care – CE Series
March 21, 2023 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm MDTCAN $399.00
This workshop is for yoga teachers, caregivers, holistic practitioners, teachers, community leaders, and community members interested in gaining the knowledge and skills necessary to support people with a stress and trauma-informed lens.
Trauma-informed care is a strengths-based practice framework grounded in understanding and considering the pervasive nature and impact of stress and trauma. As a result, we promote an environment of recovery rather than practices that may inadvertently re-traumatize.
Adopting a trauma-informed approach to your practice is not accomplished through a particular technique or checklist. In other words, it is an ongoing process that takes our constant caring awareness, attention, and sensitivity.
You will discover the tools, knowledge, and expertise to assist clients with care that emphasizes physical, psychological, and emotional safety. While creating opportunities to rebuild autonomy, self-regulation, and empowerment.
- Comprehend the benefits of evidence-based stress and trauma-informed practices.
- Learn to identify potential trauma triggers—specific to, but limited to sharing somatic and embodied practices, such as coaching, yoga, meditation, and mindfulness practices.
- Gain the ability to modify their teaching skills and engage techniques to engage students and clients with a trauma-informed lens.
- Understand how to share embodied trauma-informed movement, breath, meditation, and mindfulness practices designed to cultivate healthy coping and self-regulation skills.
- Learn to identify additional tools and resources for their continued growth and education.
Our client-centered G.R.E.E.N.E.R Trauma-Informed Model ©
prepares you to create the trust and safe environment needed to support those with trauma and stress to feel safe and comfortable to explore their somatic experience, develop healthy coping skills, face the highs and lows of mental health, and ultimately recover.
While learning to care for the caregiver, adapt their approach for the client’s benefit, hold space for resistance, and work through challenging experiences without attachment to results.
Why this approach matters
When facing the challenges of stress and trauma, we need caring professionals in our court. Therefore, a stress and trauma-informed care approach include learning to:
- Work with our clients and focus on helping them reach their recovery goals.
- Ethically support clients explore their somatic experiences with supportive coping and self-regulation skills.
- Recognize and hold space for the emotional cycles and rollercoasters of shame, pride, resistance, acceptance, love, and self-loathing.
- Maintain your stability while being witness to the darkness of stress and trauma with compassion and empathy.
- Provide a client-centered environment of safety that maintains and cultivates autonomy and agency.
What to expect
