Topics: Trauma-Informed Care, Coping with Change, Increasing Resilience, Creating Trauma, Responsive Faith Communities
Your audience learns three questions and how to use them that dramatically reduce stress, increase compassion and reflect practical application of trauma-informed thinking. Whether used with children or adults, these questions help reduce the risk of taking things personally and “Othering” others.
Like a sloppy sandwich, this keynote cams in coping with change, fostering resilience, and thinking trauma-responsively in practical terms. The applications for the knowledge and skills it contains show up in every skilled helper’s office or clinic, and at home. Learning how these three fit together, and simple tools for mastering each decreases stress, increases ease, and speeds healing.
While resilience won’t fix structural issues or guarantee social justice, it will make it easier for individuals to endure tough times and come out healthier than they might have otherwise. Resilience is an insulator against the negative impacts of life, and support for the promotion of personal positive assets. In this keynote, the audience learners about both resilience and self-care, how to amplify the benefits of self-care by using a 7C schema for resilience and simple everyday practices.
