Why Get Trained?

To be trauma-equipped is to have the tools to recognize and respond to behaviors created by trauma- in yourself, in children, in caregivers, in peers.

We utilize trauma-informed care, trauma-responsiveness, de-escalation, behavioral science, neuroscience, and experience to create a training that leaves you supported, motivated, and inspired—trauma-equipped.
