About this training: Trauma is now recognized as a nearly universal experience of individuals with behavioral health problems often resulting in a complex array of social, emotional, and behavioral challenges.   Through understanding of the latest trauma research and careful translation into practice, we can help trauma survivors experience healing, resiliency and hope.   This lively and interactive training brings to life the neuroscience of trauma and the healing power of relationships. This training also provides self-care for caregivers and service providers, so they have what they need to assist with the important journey of healing.

Participants will be able to:

  • The centrality of relationships in human growth and development, how the quality of relationships affects brain development and the healing power of empathic connection.
  • Cultural context and its impact physically, psychologically, and behaviorally.
  • The impact of trauma on brain development, attachment and developmental milestones.
  • Mood Syntonic vs. Mood Dystonic Abuse; PTSD vs. Complex PTSD.
  • Biologically Based Fear Responses.
  • The three stages of positive trauma resolution and how to address them with survivors.
  • The five resilience factors found in people who overcome and do not recreate their traumatic experiences.
