Trauma-Informed Trainings for Organizations & Nonprofits
A practical learning experience to transform your offering, organization, professional practice, team dynamics and all other spaces you occupy.
Today, more than ever, we must meet our employees and colleagues with compassion and create safe systems and processes within organizations for all to thrive.
Social injustice and systemic change are prevalent in society today. We must do our work internally and externally to shift the behaviour and mindset that so often perpetuates these damaging social and organizational constructs.
Trauma is an experience shared by all; whether you have experienced it firsthand or know people who have experienced it, it is something we come into contact with any time we work with humans. It is our responsibility to know and understand the impacts trauma has on individuals and communities as well as how behaviours manifest and how we can work alongside them and support people in every field and industry. This training gives you foundational tools and insights into what it means to be human and interact with others in a way that promotes safety, dignity, and belonging.

In August 2023, I attended Amandas 20hr Trauma-informed training through Southland Help where I work as a Kaimahi Hauora coach for people who have been sexually abused. I also own and run a local group training functional fitness gym in Invercargill with over 180 members who attend every week.
Up until this training, I knew little about Trauma, the affects it can have on someone, the affects it has on the brain and body and had very little resources or confidence to support people through this.
After just 20 hours with Amanda and getting to know Trauma in its true form, I was hooked. I was amazed that Amanda was able to hold my attention and the way Amanda presented the content in all types of learning styles and in a way, I could understand as I have never been one to be able sit still and listen or be able to take things in and restore and remember new learnings.
I walked away from this training with a new vision, a new purpose and increased confidence and excitement to want to learn more and more. From a three-day training session with Amanda and SomaPsych, I now have a new outlook on life, personally and professionally. I signed up for the 300hr Trauma Informed Training and it’s one of the best decisions I think I have ever made professionally.
