Are you ready? This work creates sustainable, collaborative, social and emotional supported awareness for leaders, teachers, colleagues, students, families and communities by diminishing inequities, oppression and systems of epigenetic wounds to fostering resilience.
This is our, "Trauma Informed"
"Susan takes her expertise in human development and instead of simply training staff (which she does masterfully) or doing interventions with individuals, she transfers that expertise to others, who learn that a different set of behaviors can get their needs met while learning you can develop these skills, and draw on concrete tools, that help build strong relationships with colleagues, staff, students and families. I've seen Susan present to community groups and at conferences. In both settings, Susan manages to send people home with a new, internal toolkit, the ability to generate new ideas grounded in the knowledge of human development, the impacts of trauma on the body and behavior, and on the ways that resilience shifts these dynamics. When knowledge is transferred in this way, participants develop the confidence to try out new strategies, right away, in any environment."

“So many of us feel like we want to DO something. We don’t want to just put up a post or two and then go back to our simple and privileged lives. In order to help create change we need tools to better understand the problem, our place in the problem and role in that problem so we can know what to do when and why. Susan’s trainings provide context to what trauma is, what causes it and our role in interacting with one another with this understanding so that we can bring people together, help create space for healing, tools to use now and work towards a world where adverse experiences are the exception and not the rule.”
