Trauma-Informed Care

January 25

This program is a private mental health training for Bayless Junior High School staff.

The mental health training outlines the way youth respond emotionally, cognitively, and behaviorally to overwhelming emotions. When we understand what changes happen in the brain and body when we become emotionally overwhelmed, we can learn to self-correct in the moment. The training will demonstrate that behaviors are purposeful and a biological hardwiring for survival that cannot necessarily be changed but managed and fine-tuned.

We also will discuss how abuse, neglect, and household dysfunction change our worldview and impact our ability to be rational and use reason, logic, morality, and regulate our thoughts and emotions. We will provide practical tips and resources to help individuals learn to self-correct as well as how to regulate the environment while teaching others to self-correct.

Learning objectives:

  • Explains origins of Trauma-Informed Care
  • Impact of trauma on our brains, health (social, emotional, physical), and worldview
  • Tips and resources to help learn to regulate your environment, while teaching others to self­ correct
  • Learn trauma-informed care principles and how to implement in any environment
  • Self-care practices and techniques
