The Rituals for Recovery Healing Arts Institute (HAI) welcomes you to its 200 hour “Trauma Responsive Mind-Body Wellness" (TRMBW™) & SEL Somatic Healing Teacher Training.
Unlike other 200-hour Teacher Trainings, our program is designed to elevate instructors into trauma responsive educators, trainers or community leaders in social change.
What You’ll Learn
This comprehensive training, equips and empowers trainees, utilizing the RFR Method to become trauma responsive, build resilience and restore mind-body wellness. The course instils the principles of yoga, energy, Jungian and positive psychology along with ~ trauma informed SEL, mindfulness based stress reduction, breathwork and how to apply them in their practice.
Our program uses a theoretical and empirically grounded approach, based on the body of trauma and yoga literature to support the effective and safe provision of trauma informed practice, somatic healing and SEL to potentially vulnerable populations. Participants will learn the practice of restorative yoga and will be prepared to teach classes through a trauma informed lens to adults and youth looking to develop a sustainable practice focused on post traumatic growth and the art of wellbeing.
This training is an integrative framework for understanding how trauma and chronic stress impact the body and mind.
In addition, Mental Health First Aid is an inclusive part of our program training and a prerequisite for our course participants to graduate.
Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is the support provided to a person who may be experiencing a decline in their mental well-being or a mental health crisis. MHFA is a certified program from the Mental Health Commission of Canada.
Participants will learn how to…
- Recognize signs that a person may be experiencing a decline in their mental well-being or a mental health or substance use crisis
- Have conversations that encourage a person to:
- Talk about their mental well-being
- Discuss professional and other supports that could help with recovery to improved mental well-being
- Reach out to these supports
- Assist in a mental health or substance use crisis situation
- Check in with one’s own mental well-being and take action as needed
TRMBW™ is the embodiment of connecting people to the social emotional learning skills (SEL) and practices needed to respond to toxic stress and overcome difficult life circumstances, so individuals can live with self-efficacy and increase self-regulation – body, mind and spirit.
The training is comprised of four 50 hour modules. Each module will consist of live Zoom sessions, pre-recorded videos, personal study, homework assignments and practice teaching.
Our revolutionary program utilizes a combination of psycho-educational tools, therapeutic interventions, and evidence-based self-regulation techniques to restore mind-body wellness.
