Nurses, Nurse Practitioners, Physicians, Social Workers, other Health Practitioners, Educators, Social and Environmental Activists–
Learn how we can be guided by our biology to understand and heal traumatic stress and develop TRAUMA RESILIENCE. In caring for others and being a witness to suffering, we may be exposed to stress that is prolonged, intense, repeated and unaddressed. Such TOXIC STRESS dys-regulates our physiology and can lead to physical and emotional symptoms and illness. Become aware of this “Trauma Exposure Response”, changes in the brain & memory, and practices that support our “range of resilience”
The content of the 6 week Trauma Resilience group will be adapted to the 6-8 participants.  Overall, we’ll be creating a safe, playful space for being together authentically,  learning through information and experience, and practicing in group & during the week.    Using van dernoot Lipsky’s Five Directions, (Trauma Stewardship)  we’ll play with creating a Trauma Resilience Map.

Week 1. Neurobiology part 1: trauma exposure response, window of tolerance, (review & expand).  Centering part 1: present moment awareness, self sensing, building capacity/resource
