Step into the transformative journey of the Applied Trauma-Informed Leadership: Practices for a Culture of Radical Care. In today’s complex and polarized world, where anxiety and confusion abound, this course offers a beacon of healing for both individuals and organizations.

Our course this year serves as a bridge to the practical application of trauma-informed approaches in your social circles and work environments. This year’s course builds on three years of trauma-informed leadership training by the Pocket Project – and will give you access to those materials as well! Feel empowered by tapping into your inner compass for healing, by developing your own toolbox of best practice and coming up with an implementation plan for co-creating trauma-informed cultures in your communities and organizations.

Throughout the course, 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.

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.

Embrace the future of responsive care and collective restoration as you embark on this empowering journey towards personal and collective transformation.
