Sciences Of Hope And Resilience

This three-hour session explores the fundamentals of brain science with a focus on the benefits of how it can positively impact individuals and schools within their community. This interactive training covers topics related to the structure of the brain and the role different parts of the brain play in helping (or preventing) individuals through life’s challenges. Additionally, we examine the role that negative childhood experiences may have on brain development while examining tools for resilience.

Trauma-Informed Care

Trauma is part of the human experience and working from a trauma-informed lens acknowledges the prevalence of trauma within the population. As such, front line workers in the human services sector can anticipate that they will often serve individuals who have experienced or been affected by trauma. This two-day interactive training acknowledges the prevalence and significant impact of trauma in an individual’s life and aims to inform service providers how to apply a trauma-informed lens to their current practice. Learning to deliver services in this way will allow service providers to appreciate the context in which their clients live without contributing to these traumatic experiences. Trauma-informed care aims to provide services in ways that recognize the client’s need for emotional and physical safety, as well as provide the opportunity for client choice, control and collaboration (Arthur et al., 2013). This workshop will define and describe six main trauma-informed principles and will focus on how to translate these principles into practice.
