Recent research on the brain and trauma gives those working in the helping professions a new paradigm to conceptualize and work with the people they serve. Understanding how trauma impacts brain development puts harmful behaviors and destructive thinking patterns in context and gives us a roadmap for building relationships and promoting healing and growth. By applying this Trauma-Informed Paradigm, workers can minimize retraumatization while creating an environment for the traumatized individual to regain control of their lives.
Trauma-Informed Communication & Motivational Interviewing
This training provides a trauma-informed framework for building relationships and helping people make behavioral change. Motivational Interviewing or MI provides a set of best practice approaches and strategies to guide how we structure our interactions and set up programming. This training builds off the concepts presented in Matt’s books Connecting Paradigms and Talking about Trauma & Change that avoid retraumatization, facilitate challenging conversations, and help those with trauma contemplate difficult behavioral and life changes.

Research demonstrates the dangerous impact on physical and emotional health when exposed to trauma is combined with a stressful work environment.

Our rapidly evolving understanding of trauma and neurobiological development challenges schools to rethink educational and behavioral strategies so that all students reach their academic potentials. In this series, we will explore best practices and strategies for helping students with trauma achieve academic success.
