Becoming Trauma Informed
This two-day interactive and dynamic training is for service providers with training and experience in counselling, having a basic understanding of the counselling and recovery process. The training invites participants to explore new paradigms and challenge the traditional understanding of the recovery and healing process. This training shifts the focus away from a position of "What is wrong with you?" to one that seeks to understand "What has happened to you and how can I help?" This exploration of trauma-informed counselling differs from a more traditional hierarchical/expert approach to one of curiosity, partnership and empowerment.
Building on material already covered in the "Trauma-Informed Tool Kit”
, the training provides participants with a better understanding of the impact of trauma, with particular emphasis on the relationship between trauma, emotions, neurobiology and recovery within supportive relationships. Participants examine their own understanding of healing and the role they play in facilitating this process in the context of trauma. The training provides practical tools for assisting people to better understand and regulate intense emotions. Each participant will receive a DVD that provides examples of various grounding techniques as well as a resource guide on trauma. Participants learn how to talk about trauma with clients/patients and build a therapeutic relationship that empowers those affected by trauma and gives them control of their own healing. Over the course of the two days, service providers learn how they care for their own emotional self and protect themselves from the affects of vicarious trauma. At the end of the training participants will feel more confident and equipped to support people affected by trauma through the counselling and recovery process.
There is a registration fee of $150 for this two-day training. Each training session will be limited to twenty participants. For registration information, contact Leslie Debrecen @ 204-784-4206 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
