Neuroscience of Trauma

January 5, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Learn the Science of Trauma and How to Mitigate It

Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) have lasting emotional and health consequences for children that can last into adulthood. The Trauma-Informed School creates an atmosphere of emotional and physical safety that mitigates the effects of ACEs. The Relationship Foundation introduces the Trauma-Informed approach, focusing on Relationship Education as an essential component of building resilience. These skills and knowledge can be applied in the family, the workplace, in schools, and in other applications.

When something happens in our outer world that has a strong emotional charge, the brain takes a snapshot of it, which is called a memory. In neuroscience, there is a process when neurons that fire together wire together creating new neural pathways. There is also a process called pruning, which results in the uncoupling of established neural connections. In this webinar, we will do a simple practice that can prune neural connections that are in the way of care, kindness, and compassion.

Neurons are nerve cells that are electrically charged, and you will get a delightful jolt out of seeing the power of listening, really listening.

Join us for this webinar and learn more.

The mission of TRF is to introduce respectful communication skills by introducing the fundamentals of Nonviolent Communication, which can empower individuals to articulate their needs and feelings without blame and judgment, and to listen empathically. This work allows individuals to thrive and improve their behavioral, academic, and life outcomes. We envision a nationwide movement that establishes relationship education as a core component of the learning process, creating a climate of empathic human connection. Through our work, we introduce a communication skillset so that organizations and schools can thrive and flourish, and where students (and adults) feel safe and the school to prison pipeline can diminish.
