This course will give you access to the key materials from past Trauma-Informed Leadership Courses. As we now learn to create trauma-informed cultures, you will gain essential tools and frameworks for cultivating resilience and compassionate leadership, delve into the neurobiology of trauma and the ethics of care, and gain insights that are crucial for navigating challenges with empathy and wisdom. You will learn how to practice self-regulation and relational attunement, and become able to share these practices with others, thus enhancing the capacity for skillful response to adversity. You will embark on a journey of ancestral healing, collective trauma integration, and post-traumatic growth, and develop basic competencies for tapping into these resources with your teams.

By joining this course, you can become an acupuncture point for trauma-informed care, contributing to the creation of global healing architectures and ethical leadership. Together, we can create pockets of healing to address pockets of trauma, helping to recognize and heal, rather than repeat, the wounds of the past. Join us to help shift our world from traumatizing to trauma-informed to trauma-healing.
