About the Course

How can we, as leaders, become focal points for relationality, coherence and safety in our spheres of influence? How can we help to build healing architectures, even when there is war? Given what we are currently seeing in terms of a rapid cumulative display of crises, it is acutely important for humanity to wake up to the hidden variable in our societal matrix: individual, ancestral and collective trauma. It is an integral part of our citizen responsibility to take care of the aftermath of transgressions of the past and turn these wounds into shared learning and ethical restoration. Our collective wounds need a collective body to heal.
The Pocket Project is delivering this Trauma-Informed Leadership Course II to fuel trauma-informed practice and help to integrate traumatic content through relational and systems sensing. As leaders, we will acquire or deepen our skills of trauma-informed presence, self- and co-regulation, titration, coherence-building and Global Social Witnessing to meet the challenges of our times with response-ability and creativity. Each of us can create relational health and healing architectures in our spheres of influence.

This course offers a refinement and deepening of our first Trauma-informed Leadership Course from 2021. In the live course we will offer additional Integration Sessions, Affinity Group Sessions and Practice Groups in Spanish, Ukrainian and German

As trauma-informed leaders, we develop our skills for systemic healing, becoming more able to integrate the past, fulfil our potential and create new opportunities and possibilities with our teams. 

When experience meets us in our open, vulnerable and responsive aspects, it becomes water, fluid life. I can respond to my life circumstances as a leader. But if snowflakes fall onto ice and my life experiences meet me in my trauma, I can’t respond to the life circumstance, and then we call it a problem, a difficulty, a challenge…



Tools for the cultivation of presence, resilience and spaciousness - nurturing self-growth and compassion

Tools and frameworks to refine our leadership and develop trauma-informed guidelines and healing architectures

Willingness to engage with ‘difficulties’ as the way, rather than in the way - cultivating curiosity and catalysing latent intelligence

Ability to engage more skillfully with team and community challenges, including the ability to recognize and respond more adequately to symptoms of stress and trauma

Increased capacity for relational and systems sensing - the ability to meet the communities, organisations and environments we serve with a higher level of response-ability

Access to a global network of like-minded conscientious innovators and change-makers

If everybody looks through broken glass, then together, we are looking at a world that looks broken. When I notice my crack in my window, and you notice yours, and we start healing our cracks, then we begin to look at the world through clear glass. And that’s what trauma healing does. It starts unifying the world.
