Relationship-Based Practice Training (RBPT) is a foundational four-day Learning Immersion™ that places equal importance on the unique and complex nature of both professionals and clients as they enter relationship-based service delivery.

Trauma-Informed Care: Translating Trauma-Informed Principles into Practice

Trauma is part of the human experience and working from a trauma-informed lens acknowledges the prevalence of trauma within the population. As such, front line workers in the human services sector can anticipate that they will often serve individuals who have experienced or been affected by trauma. This is a two-day introductory training that acknowledges the prevalence and significant impact of trauma in an individual’s life and aims to inform service providers how to apply a trauma-informed lens to their current practice.

Responding to Trauma in Early Childhood

Trauma at any stage in life can have severe impacts on all aspects of a person’s health and well-being, but developmental trauma has its own unique impacts and effects. This is due to the influence trauma has on a child’s still-developing brain and body as well as the fact that developmental trauma often occurs within a child’s primary caregiving system. This one-day training addresses these unique aspects of developmental trauma focusing on early brain development and exploring the impact and effects of exposure to ongoing or repetitive trauma in childhood.
