Mindful & Trauma Informed Care

Positive Transformation through Emotional Regulation™

“…your messages lift us up when we are feeling down and help us to think about things differently…in a more positive light. We have your book (The Quest for Peace) and will continue to read it. Thank you for all you have done for us and many, many others that you are not even aware of. I personally pass messages on to other loved ones in my life when they need it.” – Leanne and Paul Mickleburgh

The Alvarado Consulting and Treatment Group is an international network of change makers committed to Trauma Informed and Mindful care for wounded people everywhere.

WHO WE SERVE

Alvarado Consulting and Treatment Group is unique in the industry and offers an integrative and scientifically based continuum of trauma informed and secondary trauma relief services. Our mindful and sensitive approach has resulted in healing transformation for groups and individuals internationally for two decades.

CHILD WELFARE & MENTAL HEALTH

Trauma Informed Care and Secondary Traumatic Stress recovery for the healing of wounded clients and the staff who serve them.

EDUCATIONAL SYSTEMS

The correlation between trauma and low academic achievement is high. We offer alternative and effective skills in working with difficult students.

VETERANS & THE VA

Effective, brain based treatment of PTSD and Secondary Traumatic Stress for our wounded warriors and those who care for them.

FAMILIES & INDIVIDUALS

Through regulatory and mindful approaches we gently help those exposed to trauma, grief and loss mitigate the social, emotional and behavioral challenges that it leaves in its path.

ALVARADO CONSULTING KEY SERVICES

Trauma Informed Care is now the expectation, not the exception. Everyday behavioral health systems are asking the Alvarado Group how they can be better prepared to offer Trauma Sensitive responses.

TRAINING AND KEY NOTES

We offer diverse and motivational training programs developed with your specific needs in mind. All of our teaching is directed at the implementation of our trauma-informed approach in a range of service systems, including but not limited to mental health, child welfare, education, and The VA.

ORGANIZATIONAL DEVELOPMENT

70% of organizational change efforts fail, primarily on the people side. Organizations change when people change, and we are in need of change. We will teach you how to assess for and improve the drivers of organizational, team and leadership performance toward a sustainable trauma informed system of care.

CLINICAL CONSULT, COACHING AND THERAPY

We help you integrate what you have learned through repetition. Clinical consults and executive coaching serve your leadership and direct care teams toward full integration of trauma informed programing. Our therapy and life coaching team serves individuals, couples and families in need of healing.

SIMPLY HEALING RETREATS

As professionals and caregivers, we tend to focus more on the needs of our clients, our children and our staff, than on ourselves. Simply Healing Retreats® provide a sacred space of refuge and protection, safety and acceptance as we support you on a journey of release, relaxation and restoration.

Quieting the Fight, Flight, Freeze Response

Just as all children in the child welfare system have experienced different kinds of trauma, many birth, adoptive and foster parents involved with child welfare services have their own histories of childhood and/or adult trauma. Untreated traumatic stress has serious consequences for children, adults, and families. Traumatic events in childhood and adolescence can continue to impact adult life, affecting an adult’s ability to regulate emotions, maintain physical and mental health, engage in relationships, parent effectively, and maintain family stability.

Dear Human: You’ve got it all wrong…

The longer that I am blessed to sit in the midst of other’s pain and suffering, and in the midst of their recovery and restoration, the more strongly I believe that healing is not what I once believed that healing is. Healing, as I understand healing today, is to give yourself permission to find your authentic voice, your truth, your SELF and to share that with others; to remain the perpetual student as we return to our natural state of being, love.
