TCTSY AS AN ANTI-OPPRESSIVE PRACTICE
Professional training for healthcare providers, healers & activists
This professional 20-hour training is designed for social workers, activists, mental health clinicians, yoga teachers, educators, and other health care professionals who are looking to deepen their understanding of the whole-system impact of complex, intersectional trauma. It counts towards the professional certification in TCTSY through the Center for Trauma and Embodiment at JRI.
Additionally, it is designed to support those professionals in expanding their current practice, to incorporate the Evidence Based Practice of Trauma Center-Trauma Sensitive Yoga; through learning how to integrate healing the impacts of complex trauma on the nervous system, via trauma sensitive movement and breath.
Emphasis is placed on how the core components of the practice and process of trauma sensitive yoga, are also the building blocks to any anti-oppressive & trauma sensitive work. The training will provide specific tools to support participants to facilitate trauma sensitive movement and breath practices that are vital to the healing process of complex trauma (a.k.a. the many faces of systemic oppression) in personal, professional, community-based or system-wide relationships.
