Together We Give Hope

Skillfully Responding to Distress

This interactive, half-day session uncovers and explores how we can more skillfully respond to and de-escalate emotional distress situations. Using a variety of learning tools, including videos, discussions, group work and guided practices, this trauma-informed training explores: understanding the stress response, self-awareness of our own triggers and needs, active listening, mindfulness, boundary setting, and self-care.
