Day One

Day one begins with a strong focus on resilience and includes an exploration of how core values and beliefs direct the way professionals work with people. The four universal needs of all human beings as explained by the Circle of Courage model including belonging, mastery, independence, and generosity are also explained and discussed.

Participants learn about the experience of trauma as one that impacts a person’s body and are shown a demonstration of trauma’s impact on the brain. Participants learn the importance of sensory-based interventions and how to assess an individual’s private logic and universal needs. Finally, participants practice the development of trauma-informed and resilience-focused support plans.

Day Two

On day two, go deeper into the brain science of trauma and toxic stress, exploring the polyvagal theory, epigenetics, and the science of resilience. The content will emphasize the importance of hope when working with at-risk and traumatized people.

Participants learn about the SITCAP® model (Structured Sensory Interventions for Traumatized Children, Adolescents and Parents) and practice sensory-based interventions from a variety of SITCAP® model programs, including Healing the Experience of Trauma: A Path to Resilience. Experiential activities and the presentation of case examples showcase how to process trauma and nurture and restore resilience.
