The Arizona Trauma Institute’s decision to post a blog about car accidents and PTSD from an attorney’s perspective is a strategic and thoughtful move. Attorneys specialize in the legal aspects of car accidents, including liability and compensation. However, the psychological aftermath of such events, like PTSD, is often overlooked in legal discussions.

Effective Trauma-Informed communication, regardless of your role as a therapist or a coach involves more than just speaking or writing well. Here are the 5 basic skills of an effective communicator: 1 | Listening: Effective communicators actively listen to others, pay attention to what they say, and show interest in their thoughts and feelings.

We are fully present, not carrying on multiple internal dialogues with ourselves. b. We are curious and tend to expan ..read more

When coming face to face with our vulnerabilities or and in the aftermath of a major setback in our plans, there is a stark difference between surviving and recovering. To fully process and benefit from what is happening, we need transcendent leadership. This is a call for leadership that is more attuned to restoring and building hope, than applying trite aphorisms.

↪ THE ESSENTIAL ROLE OF REGULATION IN SHAPING OUR QUALITY OF LIFE   Our quality of life is ultimately shaped by our ability to think and reason. We are all equipped with a natural capacity for pre-creation, but unhealthy patterns or beliefs can get in the way of this vital process. Pre-creation necessitates appropriate regulation so that our prefrontal cortex and amygdala can be utilized effectively – providing us access to creating an intentional lifestyle. However, trauma and toxic stress create patterns and belief systems or injunctions that affect our ability to think and reason. Pre ..read more

PPL: Past Painful Learning inflicts all of us. In one moment we feel safe and we are engaging with the world, then a trigger occurs…Our present is interrupted by sentiments, scenes, smells, sounds, or sensations of the past. One or more of which transports our awareness through a time tunnel into a place of darkness and despair. Here we find our brain in one time zone and our body in another.

Our body, that stayed back in the real world, begins behaving in ways that comprises our integrity, undermines our relation ..read more

Socializing at work is essential for effectively managing stress. Sharing experiences, talking about struggles, and connecting with others actually helps employees and leaders alike to be more adaptive when facing crises or taking a risk to bring forward an innovative solution. Leader-employee relationships that are responsive and attentive to one another, with lots of back-and-forth interactions, build safety, trust, and transparency into the workplace experience. Gossip, however, does not carry the same benefits as socializing, even though it often happens in the same circles. Gossip is defi ..read more
