Understanding Post Trauma Moral Injury + the use of Sensory Dialogue + Symbolics in a trauma-informed school.

“emotional trauma is moral injury in need of soul repair”


Internationally recognized trauma therapist, author and creator of Tribal Theory facilitates this workshop that identifies the impact of post trauma moral injury on students and how we can help. Barbara demonstrates how counsellors and teachers can use Sensory Dialogue and Symbolics to help mentor students to ‘make meaning’ of their physical, psychological, cultural, and spiritual response to trauma. She also emphasizes the importance of creating both a culturally safe and eco-sensory school to mitigate and heal emotional trauma, support students acting out extreme emotional pain (bullying behaviour) and to introduce healthy coping strategies that students can adopt to respond to the crisis and adversity that they will continue to encounter in their lives.
