Sciences of Hope (Brain Science) 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Sciences of Hope: This three-hour session exists to support communities with the fundamental elements of brain science with a focus on the strengths of knowing how this can positively impact individuals and organizations within a community. The interactive session uses a common language and includes content related to brain structure, unconscious responses of fight, flight, freeze and fawn and roles of different parts of the brain. In addition, we explore the role adverse childhood experiences and the COVID-19 pandemic as they relate to brain development in partnership with the tools of resilience
Trauma Informed Approach 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Trauma-Informed Care: This community focused session explores the role that traumatic experiences can have in people’s everyday life. The focus of this information is to offer a generous approach by implementing skills that help community adopt a trauma informed approach in the relationships and roles they have. Trauma is part of 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. The hope of sharing this information is that together we can create a kinder more generous community for everyone.
