Trauma Foundations and Strategic Resilience
CRFR 1001
8:30am - 5pm in Fredericton (8 hours)

Trauma Foundations includes a modern blend of Eastern traditional wisdom combined with Western science. This program addresses the risk over time for vicarious trauma on First Responders, military, fire, police, and health care professionals as they support traumatized individuals. Repetitive invasion of another’s trauma can consciously or unconsciously subtly drain vital energy, impact personal feelings, beliefs, values, judgements, relationships and other aspects of whole person functioning. This practical program interweaves theory with resilience-based self-development tools.

Introduction to the ‘Felt Sense’
CRFR 1002
8:30am - 5pm in Fredericton (8 hours)

$295.00
(No HST)
Acknowledging how we feel from the perspective of ‘sensation’ relates directly to how healthy the nervous system is when individuals are under stress or exposed to traumatic situations. Building resilience in the nervous system leads to health at a physical, emotional, mental, psychological and spiritual level. Self-reflective practices help us know when a boundary has been breached, identify the quadrant breached, and learn boundary repair strategies. These repairs support enduring resilience.

Setting Boundaries and Boundary Repair
CRFR 1003
8:30am - 5pm in Fredericton (8 hours)
$295.00 (No HST)
Knowing that trauma can be singular or accumulative and that trauma speaks the language of ‘sensation’ with trauma reactions stored in the reptilian brain, it is important to learn the language of this primitive protective brain in order to understand PTSD and vicarious trauma responses. Using Porges polyvagal theory on fight, flight, freeze or collapse responses to trauma, resilience tools including bi-lateral stimulation, tracking, boundary repair and empathic resonance are utilized.

Mindfulness for Stress Reduction

Mindfulness has recently been found to be a treatment for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Research in this area finds that the practice of mindfulness meditation is effective in changing structures in the brain. For example meditation significantly changes the size and structure of the amygdala. Recent research on MBSR has demonstrated changes in the size and density of the amygdala which is associated with the processing of the emotional significance of an event. Key strategies for resilience founded on mindfulness based stress reduction will be covered.

Walk it Forward
CRFR 1010
This course presents some of the latest strategies and new first responder views on the power of avoidance and the core need to find enough light to imagine a new future. Discussion centers on finding ways to conquer our trauma, partly through understanding the societal issues that allow it to arise, and partly by reframing our reactions and finding new responses. It is time to integrate body-mind Eastern and Western traditions and ‘go beyond' the barriers and serious consequences that post-traumatic stress creates in our lives. Let us change the conversation, instead of breakdown, let us break through and establish a new hopeful paradigm for change.
