Trauma-Informed Training

Providing training geared to meet your needs

Being trauma-informed doesn’t happen overnight. It’s a process that takes ongoing effort and training. Great Circle’s services can guide your journey – helping you move from trauma aware to trauma sensitive, and then to trauma responsive. In the end, you’ll create an emotional and physically safe environment that’s collaborative, fosters honest relationships, and advocates for and empowers those who need services.

Great Circle’s trainings are built on four elements:

  • Realizing trauma’s impact and its prevalence
  • Recognizing how trauma affects all individuals involved
  • Resisting re-traumatization
  • Putting knowledge into practice

Trainings are conducted throughout the year across Missouri and are based on the Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics© (NMT), developed by Dr. Bruce Perry.

Understanding Trauma Through the Neurosequential Perspective: Implications for Treatment

Free to professionals working or living in Boone County. Toxic stress is a public health problem across society. To be mentally healthy, our brains acquire skills and knowledge in a very sequential way. Trauma or stress can interrupt that sequencing, creating developmental gaps that can affect a person’s ability to navigate their day. Participants will learn about brain science, impact of trauma during early childhood, ability to develop healthy relationships, and how to create an environment that’s conducive to healthy development and learning. Lunch provided. 5 CEU hours available. Click to download full description and PDF.
