This presentation weaves psychological research and neuroscience with
Tyler’s experiences of developmental trauma from childhood to
adulthood. Joining trauma-informed theory with real-life examples, Tyler’s
work will take you beyond the diagnosis and into the human experience.
This workshop will give attendees a baseline to start moving from traumainformed
and ACEs research to practical trauma-responsive action steps.
The workshop will also give them clear direction on how to deal with
stress, burn out, and primary as well as secondary trauma. Attendees will
get a deeper understanding of the power connection has in our lives and
how trauma can impact our ability to connect.
