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
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!
