Grounding Trauma 2018: Challenging Paradigms & Innovative Solutions

Keynote: Stéphane Grenier, Retired Lieutenant Colonel | Mental Health Innovator
presented by CAST Canada

The Nottawasaga Inn, Alliston, ON

Conference Objectives & Outcomes

• You will be able to confront issues regarding trauma informed services and will develop analytical capacity to
challenge approaches that are not suitable or ideal to their client base.
• You will learn new ways to think about trauma and related issues and look at new solutions to existing concerns
while hearing about new and upcoming piloted ideas and programs that will improve service
• You will learn about new innovations to address old and systemic problems as well as be able to join the culture change movement towards better support

Challenging Paradigms:
Within the health and helping field we aim to explore what isn’t working and why in a detailed exploratory way. What are our fears? What stifles progress? Why are some organizations proactive and dynamic while others are not. We will be controversial and seek to address ways to change the culture of support/trauma, review language and barriers, assess various approaches, research programs and other ideas that need to be dissected and repaired.

Innovative Solutions:
We are also interested in highlighting and sharing newly developed and perhaps controversial, outside of the box responses that are innovative, creative and being piloted in response to the challenges faced in the work and that change the culture of support/trauma.
Why "Grounding Trauma"?
Trauma is a large, complicated issue. We find that people often ignore it and focus on a particular issue and/or approach. Others 'pedestalize' trauma, focusing on it exclusively with such energy other critical parts of the persons story are missed. Trauma needs to be grounded in the full experience of the individual and approached with balance and openness.

And, as trauma is as complicated as life itself and our understanding of it is continuing to grow, an annual conference is intended to bring you quality, leading edge education and an experience that will connect you to others with similar work, and passions.

"We now have deeper insights into the nature of trauma that simply didn’t exist, even a short time ago" The Trauma Project.
