About the Training

Historical and inter-generational trauma continues to impact tribal and urban communities. We can see the unhealthy cycles of trauma repeat themselves over and over again. How this affects our places of work, individuals, and families is the behavior associated with trauma- chronic negativity, people working in silos, addictions, people taking their own lives, lateral oppression, violence, hopelessness, and more. Trauma keeps many of us in a place of deficit-thinking, often keeping us from thinking like our ancestors- from a place of abundance-based ideas, thoughts, and actions.

“Where there has been trauma, healing is the answer.”

This three-day interactive training will focus on providing an understanding of trauma on the brain, on behavior, how it plays out in the workplace and community and how to begin to address trauma and healing in your community. The training will also include how programs in their policies and delivery of services can be trauma and healing-informed.

Training Topics

  • Historical Trauma/Historical Wisdom
  • Trauma and the Brain
  • Trauma and Behavior
  • Community Impact
  • Moving Past Trauma
  • Healing
  • Integrating Healing into the Community and Workplace
  • Being Trauma and Healing Informed
  • Trauma and Healing Informed Programming

Who Should Attend

The Being Trauma and Healing Informed training is intended for tribal and urban workers representing health and social service programs, tribal leaders, TANF staff, behavioral health, administrative staff, and others wanting to learn about trauma on the brain, behavior, and policies. Being trauma and healing-informed assists communities in moving past the residual impacts of inter-generational trauma to embrace our historical and intergenerational wisdom.
