Last Date:

1050 First St. NE
First Floor, Eleanor Holmes Norton III Room 110

This training experience explores best practices to trauma-informed, resilience-oriented, and Restorative Justice-focused practices that promotes healing and provides a path toward hope, and reconciliation. The class will explore the brain’s stress-response system and how it impacts behavior and learning for students and educators. Participants will deepen their knowledge about trauma, resilience and post-traumatic growth. The workshop will demonstrate an innovative brain-wave entrainment integrated health practice and participants will experience this in a series of mindfulness activities that can be used in the school and classroom. We will dive deeper into the science behind how the brain and body respond to trauma, including the Sound Vibrionic theory and recent discoveries about how to harness brain waves and eye movements to heal trauma. Participants will receive a general overview of trauma and how to become trauma-informed, including skill-building around how to provide healing within relationships. The second part of the Trauma and Resilience training provides a more in-depth look at the cutting-edge science surrounding childhood trauma, plus offers additional skills to help professionals develop a trauma-informed practice.
