The impacts of trauma and stress, and how it manifests in the workplace.
In this session, Marisol Solarte-Erlacher will engage the audience in a 60 - 90 minute session via didactic education, audience participation, and interactive practice to solidify the knowledge and skills gained so they can be transferred to the teams in their communities. She is inclusive in her teaching style, uses multimedia methods and encourages audience participation.
As a trauma expert, Marisol will discuss the impacts of trauma and stress, how the brain responds to trauma, and how those responses manifest in the landscape of the present-day workplace. She will then provide audience members with concrete skills to address the natural course of the brain’s responses and help build resilience in themselves and their team members with these skills. She will create a safe space to share common trauma responses in those environments and to practice stress reduction along different points in the trauma response.
It is critical to eliminate shame and blame (common feelings and responses associated with the traumatized brain) when responding to and supporting persons experiencing trauma or post traumatic stress. Marisol’s approach provides you with a clear, and neutral path to help you support your team members and yourself. You don’t need to be a therapist or get any details of ‘what happened’ in order to help. You will also be provided with some basic cues to look for in determining when you or your team member may need the assistance of a trained trauma recovery clinician.
Learning Objectives: outline the key takeaways (specific skills and/or practical knowledge) the audience will gain by attending your session.
Resilience is about bouncing back from stress, tying it directly to an employee’s mental well-being.
