Episode 32: Safety & Healthy Risk Taking

Podcasters: Matt Bennett, Curt Mower, & Dr. Jerry Yager

Safety is a critical component of trauma-informed care. Without safety, people stay in survival mode and rarely change behaviors or adopt new ways of thinking. Physical and psychological safety provides space for people to test out new behavior and start thinking about their future in different ways. In this episode, Matt, Curt, & Jerry explore the role of safety and its role in the healing process.

Discussion questions:

  • Can you identify behaviors and thinking people rely on when they do not feel safe?
  • Are there any ways to evolve program structure to improve safety in your services?
  • How have you successfully help people take risks to think and act differently?
