We break down the principles of SAMHSA’s Trauma Informed Care, and help you reimagine your practice to artfully provide this kind of care. Learn the neurobiology of trauma, and why understanding the treatment of intergenerational and racialized trauma will make you a more effective practitioner. From treating Complex Trauma to applied Polyvagal theory. From helping clients cultivate interoception to building relationships with cultural humility.
