Caution Statement

Discussions and presentations of trauma-related content pose a potential for traumatization or retraumatization. As you engage in this content, please practice in active mindfulness and self-care, as it is normal and predictable for a participant to experience heightened sensations, awareness, and emotionality during an exploration of the impacts of trauma on a person’s quality of life. 

We highly encourage you to engage in therapeutic practices with a professional for the duration of this course, as activation of unresolved traumas can linger in the system unknowingly until stimuli activates a trauma-response. Having the support of a therapeutic professional drastically decreases the potential for retraumatization, as you have the ability to quickly process and resolve the situation.

If at any point you find yourself experiencing a trauma-response, please reach out to your facilitator for support and resource referrals, contact your mental health professional, or reach out to a national service, such as those listed below.
