Are you feeling undue strain and stress, thanks to the events of this past year? We're excited to offer this taster on taking care of yourself and understanding trauma -- which is what you and countless others may be experiencing.

The American Psychological Association (APA) defines trauma as "an overwhelming, life-altering experience that can cause ongoing pain and distress, and if left unattended to, can escalate to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)." APA further states that the scale of the COVID-19 outbreak alone as a traumatic event, is beyond comprehension without adding other factors of 2020 -- loss of life, unemployment, working from home with school closures, among other things.

Self-care is a vital component in managing stressors and recovery, and Dr Adriene Wright of Abelita LLC, will give us a taste of her upcoming course, "Trauma Awareness and Self-Care" (details coming soon). You'll come away with a fundamental understanding of Trauma and its effects on our emotional and psychological well-being, and some activities that can lower the psychological adrenal surge that trauma brings.

While this Taster will focus on the well-being of the individual, insights gained can have a profound effect on psychological safety in the workplace and enable leaders to recognize the effects of trauma. Practicing self-care boosts our capacity to manage our own emotional and psychological well-being, as well as build healing relationships in our interactions with others, be it the workplace, clients, or community living in trauma's wake.
