Trauma-Informed

WORKSHOPS ARE NOW AVAILABLE VIRTUALLY ONLY. Scroll down the page to see what dates are currently being offered. 

 

Trauma is often the underlying cause of many of the most pressing problems of our communities including but not limited to: poverty, crime, violence, domestic abuse, sexual exploitation, low academic achievement, mental health problems and addiction.

Although trauma may be central to many people’s difficulties, in health care and social service settings, their trauma is often not identified or acknowledged. Frequently those affected by trauma do not receive the care or understanding they need, and are at risk of being re-traumatized by the very systems they are seeking help from, which in turn may increase their involvement within the system. Every organization plays a role in supporting trauma recovery.

Becoming Trauma-Informed: Mind/Body Approaches To Creating Connection (2-day)

This two-day interactive workshop aims to provide knowledge to counsellors and other service providers working with adults who have experienced or been affected by trauma. It will also help service providers and organizations to work from a trauma-informed perspective and develop trauma-informed relationships that cultivate safety, trust and compassion.

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.

The training provides participants with an understanding of the symptoms of trauma, as well as the impact of trauma, with particular emphasis on the relationship between trauma, emotions, neurobiology and the three phases of 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.

Over the course of the two days, service providers will also learn how they care for their own emotional self and protect themselves from the affects of Trauma Exposure Response (Vicarious Trauma.)

Note: 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.

The information in this workshop builds on the material in the Trauma Informed Toolkit. The complete Trauma-Informed Toolkit can be viewed online and printed at no charge by visiting the website www.trauma-informed.ca.   Bound copies are available for purchase – https://klinic.mb.ca/about-klinic/resources/

This workshop is geared for those who have a basic understanding of counselling and the recovery process.
