Trauma has been identified as an epidemic in our society. Studies indicate that a significant portion of the population have experienced harmful or life-threatening events which have impacted their everyday functioning or well-being. The natural environment of snow sports and the conditions of ski resorts are likely to present triggering conditions for individuals who have experienced trauma, such as unpredictability, sensory overload, and pushing athletes outside their comfort zone.
This session will introduce the topic of trauma-informed care in snow sports instruction, and will include:
An explanation of what trauma is and why it matters in relation to snow sports instruction;
An overview of the effects of trauma and how it can present; and
Concrete tools to help instructors avoid the retraumatization of athletes, de-escalate situations when necessary, and help athletes build resilience.
