I live in Canada, but might be able to travel.  I am wondering what are some of your favourite training opportunities, websites and resources.  Our community and work place is just starting out on this journey.  I work in Education and at a health center.

Hi Kara,

Please join our Canadian ACEs and Trauma Informed Community here on ACEs Connection. 

It's great to know you are in Kingston and hoping to embed TIC and ACEs Awareness into your practice. 

I believe the TEND Academy operates out of Kingston. They provide training to support folks who work with trauma to be able to take care of themselves. That will be a local org to get resources from. 

Follow fellow Canadians here and online. We continue to operate in silos - I'm working on changing that but we're not there yet. Many of us offer training. As you get to know us Canadian ACEs Allies you'll find what matches your needs. 

Please follow me on Twitter @ACEsCanada2020 You'll meet many Canadians there.

Welcome to ACEs Connection!

The Family Peace Initiative has been training professionals in a trauma focused intervention for nearly a decade.  If you are looking for information and data regarding ACES and trauma, there a lots of great workshops.  If you are looking at developing skills for intervention, The Family Peace Initiative should be considered.  While the material was originally designed for battering intervention, it application potential is widespread. Here is a link if you would like more information.

Hi Jane,  The simple answer to your question is a resounding "yes".  The ACE's science serves as  critical foundation to the trauma-focused work that we do.  While this foundation is critical, our workshops give participants training on how to intervene going beyond the ACE's questionnaire to helping people end cruelty to others or to themselves or both.  Thanks for your question.  Also, thanks for letting me know that we need to update our website

Hi!

You might want to take a look at Mind Matters: Overcoming Adversity and Building Resilience.

It is a research based, psycho-educational program meant to be used by paraprofessionals in group or individual settings. It starts by helping participants build robust self-soothing skills, then moves to educating them about how the brain is impacted by trauma and adverse experiences (plus it gives them a chance to be compassionate to themselves), then it ends with skills, tools, and habits that build resiliency and promote healing.

Mind Matters can be taught in 12, one hour lessons or 21, 15-20 minute sessions. And, our clients tell us that sometimes they just teach it as they can and it is helpful. We also see people using it with their staffs to deal with secondary trauma.

Please let me know if you would like a free, 30-day online review copy.

With all good wishes,

Kay

Kara, if you are looking for guidance on supporting your community or organization in becoming more trauma-informed (rather than treatment interventions for individuals who have experienced trauma) - here are a few resources that might be helpful.
