Trauma Informed Care in Faith Communities

"Trauma Informed Care" is a strengths-based framework grounded in neuroscientific research and intentional practices designed to protect and empower trauma survivors and caregivers. By providing compassionate, trauma-informed care, individuals and organizations can create an environment where everyone can thrive.

This introductory session aims to serve faith communities through educational training. Participants will gain a deeper understanding of the prevalence of trauma and the impact of chronic stress, including adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), on brains, bodies, and behaviors. The session will review key principles of Trauma Informed Care and teach universal strategies that can be implemented by anyone, anywhere, to support long-term health and well-being for all.

Caregiver Well-Being

Anyone who cares for others can be impacted by trauma exposure and compassion fatigue. Though these experiences are normal, they can wreak havoc on our health and well-being if we donā€™t intentionally care for ourselves. Join us for an engaging seminar where we will explore together these common experiences that impact caregiver well-being and the brain-based practices that can help our nervous systems release stress and restore to us a sense of calm and well-being.
