For more than two years we have been experiencing a collective trauma that has resurfaced unresolved traumas and created new ones. The shelter in place and lock downs meant social isolation, which resulted in increases in depression and anxiety among children and adolescents. This holds true for adults as well. It is not uncommon to downplay the impact the pandemic has had on our wellbeing. If we do not address our own traumas and develop strategies for managing the effects trauma has on our body and mind, then we run the risk of re-traumatizing our children. Being trauma-responsive is about the adult first and the child second. We cannot help our children process their trauma if we haven’t first worked on ourselves.
The Inside-Out Workshop is designed to broaden the social and emotional awareness within ourselves. When we are able to recognize how our mind and body reacts to something that triggers our trauma, we can take steps to heal it through self-awareness, self-regulation and mindfulness. With greater self-awareness we are able to recognize our own triggers so that we are able to help our children learn to do the same.
