Critical Incident Trauma Response and Management
Trauma Healing that covers the spectrum
Research has taught us so much since the 1980’s about trauma and its effect on communities that it is easy to get lost in the details.
3 Mothers Medicine Trauma Healing programming helps keep it all sorted out by organizing our Trauma Healing around the primary sources of trauma, single incident trauma and related stress disorders, (PTSD) and complex trauma and related stress disorders, (CPSTD) typically arising from adverse childhood experiences.
The workshops we provide for PSTD are provided through our partner co-op Norwest Coop Community Health of Winnipeg who provide certified instructors trained in programming developed by Dr. Robert Macy at the International Trauma Center in Boston.
The instructors provide two days of instruction which covers the two core modules of Dr. Macy’s program, Psychological First Aid and Skills for Psychological Recovery.
Psychological First Aid (PFA)
PFA is an evidence-informed modular approach for assisting children, adolescents, adults, and families in the immediate aftermath of disaster and terrorism. PFA is designed to reduce the initial distress caused by traumatic events, exposure to adversity and violence and to foster short- and long-term adaptive functioning.
Skills for Psychological Recovery (SPR)
SPR is an evidence-informed modular approach to help children, adolescents, adults, and families in the weeks and months after disasters and terrorism, after the period where Psychological First Aid is utilized. Skills for Psychological Recovery is designed to reduce any ongoing distress caused by traumatic events and to foster short- and long-term adaptive functioning and coping.
Both PFA and SPR meet four basic standards.
(1) consistent with research evidence on risk and resilience following trauma
(2) applicable and practical in field settings
(3) appropriate for developmental levels across the lifespan
(4) culturally informed and delivered in a flexible manner
Whatever the source of trauma, dealing with a person coping with issues related to trauma, the immediate response requires two things.
(1) Improved awareness by the people giving aid to the people they are helping through active listening
(2) A step by step approach to people who have been traumatized and suffering as a result
There are strong correlations between acquiring these skills, then honing them by training in hypnosis, before deploying them in a methodology such as Mongan HypnoBirthing.
These three areas in the healing arts blend together as the first spinning of our warp which we then weave into our blanket of wellness.
