Tending to the parts: Trauma Informed and Healing Centered Practices

The word trauma is liberally applied but loosely understood. The effects of stress and trauma can have direct impacts on how we attend to ourselves, relate to others and make meaning of the world. This has implications for how we learn, how we work in teams, and how we filter and interpret interactions with other humans. In this session we will clearly define trauma and stress, define trauma informed/healing centered care and practices, and apply healing centered practices to our own personal practices.
