In honor of May being Mental Health Awareness month we have two resources for you:
- All four of the Trauma Training workshops bundled together (see descriptions below)
- A chance to win the Cerny Smith Assessment (even if you won one last year, if it’s been at least six months, you can enter again)!
Here’s a silly question:
Do you have stress in your life?
Of course you do. A better question would be, do you know how to handle the stress? If you’ve never heard of the CSA, here’s a description of the $200 prize you could win. Russell Semen has written this four part series on stress:
You can find all of the articles related to stress and stress management here. I’ll share about the Trauma Training Bundle and then at the bottom is how to win the Cerny Smith Assessment and time with Russell Semen.
No matter who you are, you will encounter trauma on the field … whether in the lives of those you came to serve, those you serve with, and even in your own personal experience. Have you ever been unsure what to do with the trauma you encounter be that in a teammate or local friend? This 4 workshop bundle is for you! You’ll be equipped in the basics of trauma, have tangible resources in hand, and answers to the key questions you face repeatedly. You no longer have to feel lost or unable to help!
Trauma Training 101: The Basics
This workshops lays a foundation for trauma by addressing 5 core questions that will help you with the trauma you encounter.
Trauma Training 102: Secondary Trauma & Self Care
You may not directly experience a trauma, but hearing what others experience can be traumatic. Become better equipped to handle the secondary trauma you encounter. This workshops answers 5 core questions related to secondary trauma, allowing you (and those you work with) to cope and heal.
Trauma Training 103: Healing Interventions
You, a loved one, or local friend experience a trauma. Now what? Enter Kierstie Ersch who will equip you in this workshop to help with the healing process. If you’ve ever wondered, “What can I do?” The workshop will help you answer that question.
You’ve got a handle on what trauma IS (after Trauma Training 101 and 102), now what? What can you do? What are “Healing Interventions?” Intervention is a fancy way of saying “taking action to improve a situation.” So healing interventions are the actions we take to improve a situation by bringing about healing. We will cover ways to bring healing in the different stages of healing.
Trauma Training 104: Understanding Interpersonal Trauma
Interpersonal Trauma (IPT) is when we’re hurt by another person or by a group of people. This can include strangers, acquaintances, friends, or loved ones. Pain caused by others can be significantly harder to overcome. But the good news is you can overcome it and help others overcome it too!

Because we do not want to add to your stress, we wanted you to have a decent chance of winning the CSA! A significant donor has offered to pay for 20 of you to win the CSA (including the assessment and an hour with Russell going over your results)! You can use it any time in the next 8 weeks :). To be entered, leave a comment on this post and we’ll draw the winners on Monday.
