Trauma Informed Care: New Dates Coming Soon
 

Welcome to our online class on Trauma Informed Care!

 

Trauma Informed Care is an approach to healthcare that recognizes the prevalence and impact of trauma on individuals' physical and mental health. It focuses on creating a safe and supportive environment for individuals who have experienced trauma by emphasizing collaboration, choice, empowerment, and trustworthiness.

 

As an organization, it is crucial to become trauma-informed because trauma can impact anyone, regardless of age, race, gender, or socio-economic status. By adopting a trauma-informed approach, organizations can improve their clients' health outcomes and satisfaction while also creating a safer and more supportive workplace for their employees.

 

Throughout this class, we will delve deeper into the principles and practices of Trauma Informed Care and explore how organizations can implement these practices to provide the best possible care for their clients. Thank you for joining us on this journey towards becoming a more compassionate and empathetic healthcare provider.

 

Resiliency and Self-Care for Front-line Workers & Caregivers: New Dates Coming Soon
 

Welcome to our online class on Resiliency and Self Care for Front-line Workers and Caregivers!

 

As a front-line worker or caregiver, your work involves caring for and supporting people who may be experiencing trauma and suffering. While this work is incredibly rewarding, it can also take a toll on your mental and emotional health, leading to burnout, compassion fatigue, and even secondary trauma.

 

That's why it's important to prioritize your own self-care and resiliency so that you can continue to provide the best possible care for those in need. This class will focus on strategies for building resiliency and promoting self-care, including stress management techniques, boundary setting, and building a support network.

 

By prioritizing your mental and emotional health, you not only take care of yourself but also ensure that you are better equipped to care for others. Join us as we explore the importance of self-care for front-line workers and caregivers, and learn practical techniques to incorporate into your daily routine. Thank you for joining us on this journey towards greater self-awareness and well-being.

Community/Disenfranchised Grief: New Dates Coming Soon

Welcome to our online class on Grief and Loss, focusing on Complex Grief and Community Grief.

 

Grief is a universal human experience, yet it is often misunderstood and stigmatized in our society. When we experience a significant loss, it can feel isolating and overwhelming, especially when it is complex or affects our entire community.

 

In this class, we will explore the nature of complex grief and the ways in which it impacts individuals and communities. We will discuss strategies for normalizing grief, supporting others who are grieving, and creating safe spaces for individuals and families to express their grief separately and collectively.

 

Grief is a normal human reaction to loss, but when that loss is complex and affects an entire community, the grief can become overwhelming and difficult to navigate.

 

Our hope is that by coming together and discussing complex grief and community-wide grief, we can build a greater understanding and empathy for those who are grieving. We want to create a space where individuals and communities can be supported and honored in their time of need.

 

Thank you for joining us on this journey towards a greater understanding of complex grief and the impact it has on individuals and communities. Let's work together to create a more compassionate and supportive world for those who are experiencing grief and loss.

Ambiguous Loss: New Dates Coming Soon

Welcome to our online class on Ambiguous Loss.

 

Ambiguous loss is a type of loss that occurs when the loss is unclear or uncertain, making it difficult to grieve and move forward. This type of loss is often experienced by caregivers and family members of those suffering from dementia, Alzheimer's, or those in palliative care or diagnosed with a terminal illness. It is also felt by those with missing loved ones.

 

Throughout this class, we will explore the nature of ambiguous loss, including the challenges it poses for individuals and families. We will discuss strategies for coping with ambiguous loss, including validation, reframing, and self-care.

 

Our hope is that by coming together and discussing ambiguous loss, we can build a greater understanding and empathy for those who are grieving. We want to create a space where individuals and families can find support and validation for their experiences of ambiguous loss.

 

Thank you for joining us on this journey towards a greater understanding of ambiguous loss and the impact it has on individuals and families. Let's work together to create a more compassionate and supportive world for those who are experiencing this type of loss.
