Gain a new understanding of humanity and learn how to create a more compassionate and supportive world with these strategies.
PRESENTING TRAUMA-INFORMED CARE
Faculty of the Arizona Trauma Institute connect with organizations that serve at-risk populations and present the latest in scientific research relating to trauma-informed care.
WE SHALL OVERCOME
They did not run to come in first. They ran that all people, in all places, could run and go the distance.
A BETTER WAY TO INTERACT WITH NEURODIVERSITY
Neurodiversity is often seen as something that needs to be fixed, but the salutogenic approach helps people feel seen and respected for their differences.
THE HARM CAUSED BY A NARCISSISTIC MENTAL HEALTHCARE SYSTEM
Our mental healthcare system has become a narcissistically-driven machine—all efficiency, statistics, and pathology with little compassion in sight.
REFOCUS ON FAMILY STABILITY
Is focusing on youth and children services, rather than family stability, underserving the very children we hope to help and support?
CHANGE CHALLENGES US
It is true we grow from meeting the challenge and many live for the adventure that accompanies change, but there are those who are quickly overwhelmed when their expectations are met with surprise.
THE SALUTOGENIC ASSET-BASED APPROACH
If you want to truly help others grow and change, ditch the traditional deficit-based approach in favor of the salutogenic asset-based approach.
TRANSFORMATION OF THE HEALER
No longer are clients seen as broken people who need to be fixed. Instead, they are viewed as whole people who have the ability to heal and grow. This positive, strengths-based perspective is transforming the field of counseling and changing lives in the process.
SEVEN PRINCIPLES OF TRAUMA-INFORMED CARE HIGHLIGHTED
Only through a trauma-informed awareness and approach will we be equipped to build towards resiliency and find our way in becoming the person we want to be.
BUILDING TOWARD RESILIENCY
Building toward resiliency takes courage. Facing fear does not mean the fear goes away, rather it means we use courage to inform our fears that they are not in charge.
WHY I DON’T BELIEVE IN THE PSYCHIATRIC IDEA OF RECOVRY
The goal of treatment should be increasing capacity and transformation, not simply recovery.
Are You Resilient?
Learn how to become more resilient. Become a little bit tougher, a little bit wiser, and a little bit more prepared for whatever life has in store!
Celebrate Juneteenth by becoming more informed about bias and historical trauma. Becoming more trauma-informed will help to spread compassion for others and empower the work that remains to be done for racial justice and equity.
Why are so many people unmotivated?
We are all motivated by different things. Often people with complex or chronic trauma histories are frequently motivated to avoid negative thoughts, emotions, or consequences.
