Your Trainer:

Sarah Buffie MSW, LSW, founding director of Soul Bird Consulting believes that nothing has the power to heal like supportive relationships.  Specializing in trauma responsive care, she helps organizations and individuals disrupt current models of thinking by building empathy and understanding around the effects of trauma. Sarah has worked in community organizing- specifically, Asset Based Community Development, for over a decade and has a deep passion for her work.  Her focus is to spread awareness about how trauma affects the brain and body, and teach effective approaches for developing resilience within the people organizations strive to serve, and the people closest to the work, caregivers and direct providers.  Sarah received her Masters in Social Work from Northern Kentucky University with a focus in trauma, positive psychology, and mindfulness. With years working closely in her Cincinnati community through her Americorps service as well as abroad with her Peace Corps service in Namibia, Africa, Sarah brings a unique community building lens to the work.

The Resilience Project is administered by Greater Cincinnati Behavioral Health Services (GCBH) with the support of these partner agencies: Child Focus, Hamilton County DD Services, Clermont County Board of DD, Clermont FCFC and Child Protective Services and Families Connected. The Resilience Project receives funding through a Strong Families Safe Communities grant from Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services (OhioMHAS) and Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities (DODD).
