Transforming Trauma: Building Adults Assets in the 5 Key Practices

In the next set of webinars we take a more comprehensive look into strategies that help to build healing and resilience practices in our agencies and schools. These include Reflective Practices, Restorative Practices, Reframing, Stress Mitigation and other SEL skills.  Our model of promoting resilience in organizations and schools recognizes that sustainable change requires top down, bottom up and lateral implementation of these practices. They require close partnership between and amongst administrators, workforce, clients, and they rest on the notion that resilience is largely rooted in interpersonal connections. When we prioritize and resource high quality relationships on all of these levels, the work of organizations and schools thrives.  The trauma-informed model also rests on the belief that SEL skills are not “soft skills” but essential human skills necessary for excellence, growth and positive change.
