Trauma in the Nervous System and the Tools of Resilience – This 2-hour workshop is now available to book at your workplace. Police, Firefighters, Emergency Medical Services, Nurses, Correction Officers, Security and anyone who experiences trauma or wants to learn about trauma and its effects on the body will benefit from the knowledge offered.
Trauma can occur as a result of violence, abuse, neglect, loss, and other emotionally harmful experiences and may have lasting impact on the victim’s mental and emotional stability and their ability to live a normal life.
In this workshop, you will:
- gain an understanding of common short and long-term stress responses in the brain and body, with a view from the human nervous system
- review a trauma timeline and the scientific research of the brain’s ability to heal and learn over time when the “tools of resilience” are practiced
- gain a sense of control and awareness as you understand how to proactively support yourself mentally and physically
- examine the process of “checking in” and “checking out” as you gain a deeper understanding of your own well-being
- be provided with resources to assist you on your journey to well-being
