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.

Parent/Caregiver Training:
Understanding Tough Behaviors

Parents and caregivers see the effects of trauma and toxic stress when a child acts out with little provocation or a previously outgoing child now sits sullenly and refusing to engage with others. These behaviors can leave a parent or caretaker at a loss on how to respond.

Traumatic experiences and toxic stress can affect a child’s brain development and cause the child to have difficulty regulating emotions, working with others or developing basic learning skills. The child can then have chronic problems in school or at home.

This free workshop is designed for parents and caregivers and is based on the Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics© (NMT) developed by Dr. Bruce Perry. Trained clinicians from Great Circle will walk through the basics of brain science and give participants:

  • An understanding of how interruptions in brain development can affect a child’s behaviors
  • Knowledge on how to apply basic brain science concepts  to support healthy emotional and behavioral growth in the children they care for

Professional Training:
Understanding Trauma Through the Neurosequential Perspective: Implications for Treatment

(CEUs available)

Brain science is a fast-growing area of focus for those who work with individuals who have been exposed to trauma and toxic stress through childhood adversity. Understanding the stress response system and circumstances that impact functioning is critical when trying to support growth and development. Participants delve deeper into both brain science and the impact of stress and trauma, and learn additional skills to help individuals reach their greatest potential.

The free workshop is based on the Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics© (NMT) developed by Dr. Bruce Perry and presented by trained clinicians from Great Circle. Participants will:

  • Learn how trauma during early childhood impacts the brain’s development and affects a child’s relational capacity as they mature.
  • Discover how healthy and unhealthy relationships contribute to a  person’s ability to self-regulate and achieve long-term success.
  • Understand how to create an environment that is conducive to healthy development and learning.

This workshop is approved for 5 continuing education hours through the Missouri Social Workers Committee and the Missouri Licensed Professional Counselors Committee.

Registration deadlines:

  • April 10 for April 24 workshop
  • July 3 for July 17 workshop
