Description: Many gender-specific residential programs striving to provide trauma informed care either overlook the intake and orientation process or only give it cursory attention. However, the first 72 hours may determine if the client feels safe, a basic tenet of trauma informed care, which determines her response towards treatment. During the intake process, staff probe into the most personal and sensitive part of a woman’s life, which can be extremely intrusive, painful, and re-traumatizing. Additionally, women can have a host of experiences that may emerge during intake, thus triggering trauma responses and set the tone for their perception of the program. This workshop will inform the development of a gender-specific trauma-informed approach during the intake and orientation period: The First 72 Hours.

Description: The integration of science and spirituality may seem diametric, but these areas of study are more complimentary today than at any other time in history. Science is now proving what spirituality has been speaking to for millennia. This webinar examines how a spiritual approach to recovery is supported by findings in neuroscience. Examples of fMRI scans show changes in our brain as spiritual practices are used. Research-based models of spiritual approaches used in recovery are explained through the lens of neuroscience. These include MBSR, IFS, DBT and 12-Step Facilitation Therapy. Specific research supported practices of mindfulness, breath, mantra, and journaling examples will be given.
