“Optimism for me isn’t a passive expectation that things will get better; it’s a conviction that if we can make things better — that whatever suffering we see, no matter how bad it is, we can help people if we don’t lose hope and we don’t look away.”

-Melinda Gates


Workshops and trainings are available to support agencies in building capacity for serving the unique and holistic needs of survivors in a way that is empathic and tolerant of their experiences. We have conducted trainings and workshops for community organizations around the Bay Area, including Alameda County Behavioral Health and their Community Based Organizations, and Seneca Centers. We welcome invitations to develop a workshop or training for your agency. Example trainings include:

  • Trauma 101: The Basics of Psychological Trauma and Traumatic Stress

  • Assessing Psychological Trauma and Associated Features

  • Self-Care: Reducing and Preventing Burnout

  • Interpersonal Trauma: The Effects on Body, Mind, and Spirit

  • Empirically Supported Treatments for PTSD

  • Trauma-Focused Therapy: An Introduction to Cognitive Processing Therapy

We can consult with your agency to design a workshop specific to the needs of your staff and the population you serve. Get in touch to let us know your interests and assist you in identifying and refining your goals for an agency workshop or training.
