Staying Grounded in Stressful Work

Essential Grounding and Debriefing Skills for High-Stress and Trauma-exposed Professionals

The pace, content and competing demands of the modern workplace has left many of us operating in constant stress and overdrive. This elevate state is challenged further with added work pressures and trauma exposure.

Eventually, we can find ourselves shutting down and numbing out because our bodies are not built to function in this high-energy state for extended periods of time. As a result, we see many negative physical, emotional, behavioural and relational consequences in the workplace.

This workshop will teach helping professionals how to move out of states of reactivity or avoidance into a place of possibility – one where we are centered amongst the chaos and can choose how we wish to respond. It is ideally suited for front-line workers, but will have applicable content for anyone who works in a fast-paced, high stress environment.

Based on neuroscience and trauma theory participants will learn:

  • How the experience of ongoing stress, crisis and trauma exposure impacts us and our colleagues
  • The “Window of Tolerance” (WTF) model for self-monitoring
  • How we can quickly recover our equilibrium and reset our bodies during moments of high stress
  • How to help our colleagues during moments of high trauma/high stress
  • About resilience and tools that enhance our sense of personal strength, purpose and joy
