Synopsis: Experiencing trauma and subsequent triggers impact both the brain and the body causing these systems to go into fight, flight, freeze mode. Being in this survival mode may impact an individual’s ability to remember details, feel comfortable or safe, and develop trust. This training will help participants understand and recognize these trauma responses. Further, it will provide a framework for how participants can support themselves or others regulate their brains and bodies and utilize relationship building strategies to get to “back on track” and into reasoning.
Participants will learn:
• How the brain and body responds to traumatic stress
• A strategy for supporting those impacted by trauma: Regulate, Relate, Reason
Participants will receive 1 hour of continuing education credit.
