Parenting our children can be both rewarding and challenging. Parenting during the COVID-19 global pandemic has brought new challenges and fears as we have all experienced the isolation of lockdowns and social distancing, concerns for our health and safety, and the uncertainty of what the future will bring. Although families continue to adapt to the best of their abilities, the sense of isolation, loss of routine and structure, and lack of access to social supports and resources has been an overwhelming and traumatic experience for many.
Part of developing cultural humility in counseling is to explore one’s own identity and to seek to understand the lived experiences of people who are different than ourselves. This 6-hour workshop will help counselors explore one of many layers of identity, environmental identity. Environmental identity involves how one views themselves in relation to the natural world.
The park where the training will be held and its location will be decided by mid August and will be local to the Twin Cities.
The objectives of this workshop are as follows:
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) occurs when an external blow to the head results in an alteration of brain function. These changes in brain function may range from “mild” with short-term consequences to “serious” with permanent injury and impairment. Such trauma may be accompanied by a wide variety of physical (e.g., seizures), cognitive (e.g., inhibition, working memory), affective (e.g., emotional dysregulation), and behavioral (e.g., impulsivity) impairments that have significant implications for the impacted individual, his or her family, and society as a whole.
We live in a culture that tends toward disconnection from oneself and others which leads to destructive division. How do we first awaken to ourselves more honestly? From there, we can awaken to another’s reality. Only in this personal awakening can we work toward lasting change. How do we help our clients do the same?
Trauma Informed Care (TIC) is an overarching philosophy, framework, and organizational structure designed to better understand and recognize the impact of trauma on the individual through a strengths-based perspective. Because clients who seek services from mental health and substance use treatment providers frequently have histories of trauma exposure, knowledge of TIC is imperative for professionals working within these settings.
