Trauma in the Community : Embodying Safer Therapy Spaces

May 1 @ 6:30 pm 8:30 pm

An Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Training with Nicole Brown Faulknor

This trauma care training will offer support around showing up in your body to do trauma-informed work. 

Participants will experientially explore “Embodied Feelings + Stories” in terms of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion. Using our own bodies as mirrors we will reflect upon how to support members of racialized or historically ignored communities. For psychotherapists, supervisors, workshop facilitators, or teachers, frontline workers, administrators, and those interested in becoming a better ally.

This training is done through an educational lens with compassionate
self-inquiry through various sensory exercises.

Participants will develop more embodied self-awareness around unprocessed emotions, unconscious projections, power dynamics and boundaries that affect the potential of creating a safer therapy space.

Nicole is both Founder & CEO of Wounds 2 Wings Trauma + Psychotherapy Services https://www.wounds2wings.com/ and TEAO Canada (Trauma and Embodiment Association of Ontario) https://www.teaocanada.com/, a Yoga Instructor, Registered Psychotherapist, Child and Youth Counsellor, Trauma Consultant, Trauma Care Expert, Author and Trauma Survivor.

She is also a member of both the Colleges of Registered Psychotherapists in Ontario and the Canadian Association for Psychodynamic Therapy. 

Nicole has spent a few solid years, leading into 2018 and onward of research, embodied interactions in communities and corporate knowledge, after spending over 18+ years of professional experience working with historically ignored, vulnerable and oppressed communities, individuals, families and children. These communities suffer from mental health, addictions, systemic poverty and profiling  and my intention is to therapeutically improve relationships with programs and services, integrating trust and support within the cracks of our mental health care system.  Nicole continues to bring awareness to the underpinnings of why emotional health is our mental health.
