The trauma basics workshop will explore the nature and impact of adverse childhood experiences (ACES) and how these experiences impact human development. Signs and symptoms presented in young adulthood can be linked to such incidents, and we will explore how to understand brain development in response to  trauma and the basic interventions that can help mitigate trauma and stress. Participants will also learn how to identify and use individual strengths to promote healing and wellness. 


1. Define the term trauma informed care and identify the components of a trauma-informed approach to care. 

2. Understand the impact and adverse childhood experiences on developing children and be able to recall the three categories of ACEs.

3. Identify the window of tolerance and and describe the states of hyper-and hypo-arousal. 

4. Apply at least three mindfulness skills used to help clients engage with the present moment and increase their windows of tolerance.
