Education & Facilitation
REACH Facilitation includes management of intervention and programs, it includes support in moving forward along the journey of learning through rehabilitation and recovery, and it also includes referral to additional services when needed. REACH endeavours to facilitate each intervention/program it creates and implements specifically through the lens of education. When an individual or community becomes aware to what is happening inside their brain and body (or people) in response to various traumas, they are better informed and equipped to journey the path to health and wellness. Becoming trauma informed diminishes fear and provides empowerment and strength to take charge over one’s own rehabilitation and health. Education is the strongest tool that can be given; REACH seeks to help others realize their own learning through trauma and take control of their futures.
REACH Education / Facilitation is designed to:
- Teach and adjust attitudes of uninformed individuals toward trauma and those who are suffering from it, creating awareness of the time involved and high importance of correct response and consistency in services
- Equip individuals with the most current research and information regarding child development, the effects of trauma and adverse childhood experiences, the differences and correlations between generational trauma and current trauma symptoms, importance of positive enriching experiences and relationships, and various approaches to the behaviours/mental health issues/life situations that result from trauma, thereby becoming trauma informed and trauma aware
- Implement modalities and present tools with cultural sensitivity in the face of trauma, with focus toward the best possible environmental, relational, and familial conditions needed to achieve positive change
- Create value and courage in individuals to present themselves as caring, compassionate and trauma informed, ready to engage and interact with the greater community, whether in emergency situations or regular day to day exchanges
