We know trauma and toxic levels of stress affects the brain, body, and behavior. Current research is demonstrating its influence on our genetic code through gene expression (epigenetics). Research demonstrates that toxic stress disproportionally affects individuals in marginalized groups through stereotype threat and implicit bias. Join us as we explore resilience based, trauma responsive, interventions that can be done even on the fly and have a positive impact to help develop cultural humility, resilience and culture shifts by identify and addressing the unseen messages we all live with driving implicit bias and stereotype threat. 

This introductory training is an opportune way to best support participants in learning the language and skills to support ongoing culture shift and self-awareness. The training will have a specific focus on how unlearning bias can better support communities.

Learning Objectives

Participants will be able to identify and address:

  1. Stereotype threat and how to address it
  2. The epigenetics of trauma and how to address it
  3. Interventions that can be applied on a single contact with trauma survivors
  4. Our multifaceted identities and the narrative lens
  5. Intention vs. impact
  6. Tools for uncomfortable conversations when narratives are challenged
