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 The ChildTrauma Academy.
