At the Alvarado Consulting and Treatment Group we offer far more than traditional trauma informed care; we dive deep into Healing Informed Care and Employee Well-being that does more than offer days off to rest.

In each of our products and live workshops we explore the topic of emotional and psychological trauma and how to provide caring, compassionate, and empathetic services that are mindful, whole brain/body and trauma-informed.
Trauma affects people of every race, age, ethnicity, and socioeconomic level.
Trauma can be a single isolated event or a series of events.

A traumatic experience involves some type of a threat to one’s physical or emotional well-being and can bring out feelings of terror, helplessness, and lack of control and power.Traumatic experiences touch us to the soul. Trauma can impact and alter an individual’s perception of themselves, their world, and the people around them and can disrupt the victim’s biological, cognitive, and emotional functioning as well as their identity, relationships, and social interactions.

As service providers, it is imperative that we implement care and services that follow the tenets and principles of Trauma-Informed Care (TIC), and simultaneously provide care for the staff who care for others. Everything that we teach through Emotional Regulatory Healing, ERH, provides a parallel process of healing for staff and client alike.

If we expect our staff to care for our clients, we must care well for our staff.
We will support your Employee well-being initiatives by offering simple, effective practices appropriate for any work setting in which staff are faced with high stress, traumatized clients and low retention. These practices will enable your staff to remain calm in the face of chaos, resilient in times of change, and motivated to stay with your organization. Our leadership courses provide those with the most impact the means for supporting staff during the most challenging times.

In each of our courses, you will learn about several principles and tenets of TIC. You will be challenged and inspired to provide the best care possible to those who have been affected by the ravages of traumatic experiences and you will be inspired toward your own healing journey as well.

Who these courses are for:

Anyone interested in understanding the short and long-term effects of emotional and psychological trauma, and how to effectively respond:
Social Workers, Educators, Counselors and Psychotherapists, First Responders, Foster and Adoptive Parents, Leadership of staff who serve others, Call Centers, and Leaders of workplace environments where stress impacts performance, moral and employee well-being.
