Historic Trauma

Trauma can be historic and pervasive


In recent times, front burner issues such as covid one nine and race have brought about their own share of trauma to individuals. Unfortunately, trauma is shrouded secrecy and denial and is often ignored. We must be ready for and to provide Trauma-Informed Care


In behavioural health care, harm is done or abuse is unintentionally recreated when caregivers don’t ask about trauma.

Historic Trauma
Trauma-informed care (TIC) is now the expectation, not the exception, in behavioral and mental health intervention.


There is no better time than now to learn how to enhance the mental well being and overall wellness of yourself and those you care for.


This Integrated Trauma-Informed Practice Program is for counselors, coaches, managers, social workers, medical and mental health practitioners, business owners
