This training series designed to give you the keys to unlocking an understanding of how stress can become toxic in the body, leading to stuck patterns like anxiety, behavioral disruption, and shutting down.

Session 1 - 9/13/23 will give you a foundational understanding of nervous system injuries (aka accumulating stress and trauma), how they present in ourselves and others, and how we can start to heal these injuries with tools for the moment and for long-term resilience.

Session 2 - 10/18/23 will focus on us as helping and educational professionals. We will do a deep dive into protecting our resilience and preventing burnout. This workshop will use the newest scientific findings on stress and evidence-based practices for mental health and trauma work to equip you to find refreshment and grounding in working with children and families.

Session 3 - 11/8/23 will shift outward. We will discuss common patterns that present when the nervous system is injured, including signs of anxiety, behavioral disruption, diminished executive functioning, and shutdown and withdrawal. Using a somatic, trauma-informed, and evidence-based approach, we will teach you the awareness and the tools to intervene appropriately when students and clients are activated and how to facilitate long-term healing and resilience in those you serve.
