Many of us associate trauma with major disasters. However, trauma permeates our daily lives in many forms—relationships end, things break, people hurt our feelings, friends get sick, parents age, teens rebel, and careers end. The list is endless. In a rush to feel and act normal, many of us may avoid dealing with the pain of these life experiences and can end up feeling isolated and stuck. The willingness and courage to face our everyday traumas and heal from them will enable us to build resilience and successfully navigate our way through life.
In this innovative workshop you will learn skills to:
- Identify everyday indicators of trauma in self and/or loved ones.
- Identify reasons why you may be feeling stuck in your personal and/or professional lives.
- Ways to help your brain get back on track and heal from the trauma of being human.
