A young black woman works on her laptop outside representing a young professional who could benefit from Trauma Training in Baltimore, MD.

I love training as a trauma-informed mind-body-trained consultant, trainer, and presenter. I’m not just saying that because it’s me. As a social worker, to maintain my social work license, I have to complete continuing education credits. To obtain these credits I attend trainings and presentations year around. As a social worker providing therapy services, I also consult with other professionals. In doing so, I’ve realized that every professional brings something unique to consulting, training, and presenting services. This “something” is themselves and their unique perspective.

My Unique Perspective

As a trauma-trained mental health professional, my view of individual, communal, organizational, and systemic concerns is rooted in trauma. By this, I mean that I am naturally curious about the impact of harmful or hurtful experiences within individual, communal, and organizational systems. I am also curious about how trauma is explained and potentially misunderstood in individual and social interactions. Fight, flight, freeze, and fawn trauma responses occur in every workplace. My perspective includes a focus on the triggers and healing of these responses.

The Physiology of the Stress Response

As a mind-body medicine trained professional, my perspective extends into the physiology of the stress response. In other words, I’m often curious about how traumatic experiences are impacting processes within the human body. These processes include mental, emotional, spiritual, and physiological impacts. Most often, we don’t walk around saying “I’m having a stress response and now I have a headache”. We instead notice we have a headache and may not always be curious about facts contributing to the headache.

I combine these two perspectives to identify potential triggers, acknowledge the real-life manifestation of stress responses, and offer implementable interventions. I believe strongly in the law of self-recovery which suggests that we human body is capable of healing itself. Therefore, many of the interventions I provide include ideas for each person across the lifespan.

A Trauma-Informed Mind-Body Approach for Professionals

Oftentimes, it is assumed that a trauma-informed mind-body approach mostly applies to mental health professionals. While mental health professionals are certainly leaders in using these skills, they aren’t the only ones who can benefit. A trauma-informed mind-body approach involves paying mindful attention to internal and external processes and using skills to decrease unwanted effects and improve health outcomes. We are all human beings living in this world, which means, that we are all exposed to stressors and triggers. Additionally, we all can benefit from understanding them more and having more tools to improve how we navigate this world.

R.I.S.E Works With a Wide Variety of People

We work with victim service professionals interested in creating safe spaces for survivors.  We provide services to attorneys interested in incorporating a trauma-informed anti-oppressive approach to legal services. At RISE, our work also includes working with medical professionals interested in deepening their understanding of somatic and psychological concerns.

Why You Need A Trauma-Informed Mind-Body Trained Consultant, Trainer, and Presenter

Our minds and bodies are connected. Trauma responses change the way our body communicates with our inner and external environment at any given moment. But, we all have the power to understand this connection and work together to address any unintended outcomes. This applies across cultures, across agencies, and across professions.

At my Baltimore-area counseling center, I work with women who are survivors.
