Sciences of Hope and Resilience (Community Version) - 3 Hours
This session breaks down the basic elements of brain science and development as well as how this knowledge can impact individuals and organizations within a community. The workshop focuses on brain structure, automatic responses of fight, flight, freeze, and fawn, and roles of different parts of the brain. We also explore the role of negative or adverse childhood experiences (ACES) and Covid-19 as they related to both how the brain developments and how it can impact individuals as they grow into adulthood.
Trauma-Informed Care (Community Version) - 3 Hours
This workshop explores the role that traumatic experiences can have in people's everyday life. The focus of this information is to raise awareness surrounding the impacts of trauma and building skills that help the community adopt a trauma-informed approach in the relationships and roles they have. Trauma is part of human experience and working from a trauma-informed lens brings awareness to the prevalence of trauma within the community. As such, everyone can anticipate that they will interact with individuals who have experienced or been affected by trauma. The hope of sharing this information is that together we can create a kinder more generous community for everyone.
