Trauma-Informed Practices

Through training, we strive to increase the understand the impact complex developmental trauma (toxic stress) has on brain development and behavior of adults and infants as well as discover how to use this information to better engage individuals, families and children. Need more? We offer post-training consultation as well to better embed concepts into practice and move the needle from "trauma informed" to "trauma competent".
