Understanding trauma and how it affects those that we serve is a vital key in developing healthy and thriving communities. This innovative workshop introduces various tools and techniques to help mitigate the psycho-physiological issues that can develop to those working in fields where trauma/suffering is prevalent. Angela provides evidence-based support to illustrate the usefulness of mindfulness practices amongst clinicians, social workers or anyone in a helping profession, including yoga instructors. This workshop provides some background information on how child abuse and neglect in our communities shapes views towards trauma and those that work with the most vulnerable of our society: children.
Participants will explore how the philosophy, principles, spirituality and practice of Yoga are instrumental elements in helping professionals enhance the factors that underpin emotional resilience to stress. Participants will be guided through a short asana and meditation practice that has proven effective in reducing stress and building reliance.
