Today, trauma is more widespread than ever.
COVID, climate change, and persistent inequities are impacting individuals, families, and entire communities.
As we provide nature connection during these challenging times, trauma-informed mentoring can help us to deliver a greater, more positive impact.
In September of 2020, Carly Humke, an elementary school counselor, educator, and veteran nature connection facilitator, offered a 1-hour presentation to the Nature Connection Network.
Her presentation titled, “Mentoring All Through a Trauma-Informed Lens”, can be found below including a video recording of the presentation as well as PDF resources.
So much of what is done in nature connection programming is exactly what all humans need.
Humans crave a sense of belonging and connectivity, a sense of safety, and a sense of self-efficacy. We need hope and calm. And we are living during tumultuous times with varying degrees of safety and connectivity. Let’s deepen our understanding of the impacts of trauma and the ways we can support ourselves and those we work with.
Join Carly for this presentation as she covers:
- Trauma-informed concepts explained
- Behavioral patterns and the process of unlearning these behaviors
- Co-regulating and other strategies for moderate stress
This call was co-hosted by Simon Abramson from the Nature Connection Network.
