Course Description

Taking a trauma-informed approach has  become a bit of a trend, especially since the COVID shutdown for organizations and/or healthcare providers to to market themselves as “trauma-informed.” But what does it actually mean to be trauma-informed? It is something you only use when you know a patient has a history of trauma? Is it just teaching stress-relief strategies? And wouldn’t that really fall to the mental health professionals? 

If you’ve heard people asking these questions or have asked them yourself, then join us for THE trauma-informed crash course we didn’t even know we needed until now.

  1. Explain the neurological pathways involved in emotional memory and trauma responses.
  2. List three, evidence-based bottom-up techniques to promote body regulation for any age.

Instructor(s)

  • Kim Neely

    Speech-Language Pathologist

    Kim Neely

    Kim Neely is a working speech-language pathologist and is “pretty okay” at it. Prior to becoming an SLP, she was a (mildly successful) opera singer and voice teacher. She received her Master of Science from the University of Arizona in 2014 and was awarded the Jean R. Guloien Outstanding Graduate Student Award that year — which is pretty cool considering she didn’t even get into a graduate school the first year she applied. She also hung around for two years after that (i.e., attempted a PhD) and took a lot of doctorate-level neuroscience courses. (So if you’re an SLP who feels like Kim learned more about the brain in her masters than you —she didn’t. She just kept on going and going and going with her neuroscience-learning. ‘Cause…well, hyperfixations, mainly.) Kim is neuroqueer (neurodivergent and queer) and is really, really hyperfocused on trauma-informed care. To this end, she took a graduate course on the topic during the COVID-19 shutdown (so it was basically her sourdough starter) and then continued her training through Trauma Institute International, where she received her certification as a Trauma-Support Specialist (CTSS), which she maintains through ongoing training. Kim is also super tired of masking and recently ran out of hecks to give about it. Her brain is a veritable Olympic-level ping-pong match of facts, theoretical knowledge, in-depth research on topics of interest, word-for-word scenes from movies she’s seen once or twice maybe 20 years ago, and weird references to niche TV shows. In her spare…all the time, Kim is a recovering forgetter-of-her-successes, perseverator-of-her-failures, and professional info-dumper. Disclosures: Kim receives financial compensation from Patheous Health for completing this course and has no non-financial relationships to disclose.
