Presented by Angela Luna, LMFT
Mindfulness has been a growing powerful tool for providing health and healing and has been widely acknowledged for its mental health benefits. Yet, for those who have experienced trauma, mindfulness can create discomfort, increase pain and potential re-traumatization. According to research, roughly 61% of adults have experienced at least one traumatic event in their lifetimes, which result in sensitivity to trauma triggers. As such, it is important for clinicians to understand how to approach providing mindfulness tools in a trauma informed way, to help practitioners manage trauma triggers when focusing on their body and breath.
Participants will be able to
1. Define and describe 1 or more unique aspects of trauma-informed mindfulness.
2. Learn a minimum of 3 different trauma-informed mindfulness tools.
3. Identify at least 1 or more trauma-informed mindfulness tools that can be used personally and to support clients and practitioners.
