Through a range of professional growth and well-being programs, our aim is to equip and empower every practitioner with the knowledge and tools needed for effective support, healing, and relational repair.

With 4 successful Trauma to Healing workshops already conducted, engaging over 90 practitioners from 21 organisations across regional NSW, and more than 150 registrations for upcoming workshops in Liverpool, Albury, Tamworth, Penrith, Parramatta, and Gosford,
our impact continues to grow.

This one-day in-person workshop will provide practitioners with increased understanding of the impact of childhood trauma, the neurobiology of trauma and how it manifests biologically. By using the internationally acclaimed TECA tool, practitioners will learn how to provide therapeutically matched responses which are adaptable to the context of your role.  This assessment can be used by ANYONE and provides activities which offer opportunities for relational repair and enrichment.
