RESPONSES TO TRAUMA
“R2T should be mandatory training and a part of reintegration for all soldiers”
The Responses to Trauma (R2T) program supports individuals and communities by proactively addressing traumatic exposure and building capacity for increased well-being. This interactive 5-day workshop applies the latest research from psychology, neurobiology, mind-body medicine, mindfulness and the creative arts.
The R2T workshop examines the physical, cognitive, behavioral and spiritual impacts of trauma. Participants explore their own trauma histories and identify sources of resilience and strength. Participants gain powerful tools to regulate their responses to trauma and to release trauma energy in healthy ways. Participants likewise learn creative breaking free strategies for use in their families, organizations, and communities. On the final day of the workshop, R2T participants design concrete action plans for continued personal growth and professional/organizational implementation.
