Designed for wellness professionals, this webinar will introduce you to the topic and begin to equip you with the tools you need to offer mindfulness in a safe, effective, trauma-sensitive way. 

You will leave the workshop: 

• Understanding why meditation can create dysregulation for people who’ve experienced trauma and specific ways you can prevent this; 

• Prepared to recognize symptoms of traumatic stress while offering mindfulness interventions; 

• Informed about current empirical research regarding mindfulness and trauma, including evidence-based interventions you can apply immediately to your work; 

• Equipped with tools and modifications to help you work skillfully with dysregulated arousal, traumatic flashbacks, and trauma-related dissociation. 

• Understanding the relationship between individual and systemic forms of trauma, including responsibilities to educate oneself about power, oppression, and social context. 

Whether you’re a beginning or veteran practitioner, anyone engaged in offering contemplative practices will benefit from this webinar, including therapists, coaches, and meditation, classroom, yoga, or religious teachers.
