    Trauma Training/ Professional Development

    Do you feel frustrated, overwhelmed, and stressed by your child or student’s behavior?
    Are the traditional strategies you have been taught not working?
    Are you ready to help break the cycle of trauma and see lasting changes in those you work or live with?

    Becoming trauma-informed is not just about learning about trauma and creating a checklist of things to do. Being trauma-informed is a shift in how we see and understand behavior. It is a shift in how we respond to others. It is a shift in how we see ourselves.

    Kendra has experience leading professional development and workshops for educators, foster/adoptive families, parents, residential/direct care staff, and churches. Kendra strives to help organizations move beyond being trauma-informed into truly integrating trauma-informed practices and creating healing systems. Kendra’s unique experiences working in residential foster care and in the school system provide her with first-hand experience implementing trauma-informed strategies, creating system change, and the challenges and struggles that come along the way.

HOPE training will help your organization identify ways to better ensure children have more positive experiences that will support their growth.

    Trauma-Informed Care Intensive Training
