“Individual trauma results from an event, series of events, or set of circumstances that is experienced by an individual as physically or emotionally harmful or life-threatening and that has lasting adverse effects on the individual’s functioning and mental, physical, social, emotional, or spiritual well-being.”-(SAMHSA)
All fitness professionals will encounter clients who have suffered through trauma, whether relative, cumulative, complex, or community-based. The trauma they experience reaches far beyond the psychological domain and into the spiritual and physical, often with lasting adverse effects.
Consequently, it is imperative that all fitness professionals work from a trauma-informed lens. In this webinar, you will learn about trauma and its impact on wellbeing and health, as well as some introductory strategies to work more effectively with clients who have survived trauma.
