Trauma Informed Collaboration: Foundations

Finding ease when encountering trauma responses

This 11-week course interlaces recent scientific research on trauma with embodied practices and collective intelligence/wisdom. We won’t be making you a therapist, but will give enough background theory and awareness to recognize trauma responses in others and in oneself; and how to apply it to your work situations.

New organizational models and practices put a strong focus on relationships, and on creating spaces where people can be more authentic, more open, and where they can “bring their whole self to work”. Collaboration in these spaces is asking for different capabilities, for facilitators, coaches, team members or leaders.

We notice more attention for personal, organizational, and intergenerational trauma. Recently, scientific research and theory has emerged explaining trauma and its effects. Deep personal and collective stuff becomes more visible and disciplines, like regenerative practices, include healing as a key aspect of their impact.

Regardless of the role we play in a group, as collaborators, we find ourselves in need of a trauma-informed approach. This course invites a small cohort into a safe learning container to explore how to create connection without pushing too far, how to equip ourselves as we invite others to dive into self-exploration and vulnerability, and how can we make sure that, at least, we are not creating more trauma.
