Many of us have stories about how we survived traumatic events or cope with loss or crises. But just how do we thrive in the aftermath of trauma? In the last decade research has changed our understanding of how trauma impacts us emotionally, socially, and physically. These discoveries are leading to innovative treatment that enhance resilience, are culturally responsive, and support healing of mind, body, and spirit. They form the foundation of how we not only survive trauma, but also how we learn to thrive and restore the self.

This conference brings together both recognized and new voices in the treatment of traumatic stress.  The conference will be held in "virtual meeting style" so that participants can interact with each other, engage in hands-on experiences, share through discussion, and ask questions for the faculty in real time. We feel this adds life to the online platform and allows participants to connect with others during the event.

Our intention is to provide an event that includes, but is not limited to the following:

  • Presentations from leading trauma experts to help us contextualize our experiences and the experiences of people in our care;
  • Actual practices grounded in neuroscience, somatic, expressive, and sensory-based approaches to only address the mind, but also the body's experiences of  trauma;
  • Special focus on sensory integration, body-oriented approaches, neurofeedback, expressive arts therapy, mindfulness, and cultural orientation;
  • Applications that demonstrate integration of these practices to support regulation, co-regulation, exploration, and restoration;
  • Understanding and recognition of the intergenerational, transgenerational, and historical grief and trauma that are central to community experiences of loss and traumatic stress;
  • Development of awareness of social justice issues and individual lived experiences that are central to trauma stress. 

This conference focuses on four key factors in restoration of the self and the process of healing:
