POWER-BASED TRAUMA PREVENTION
CONSULTANT | RESEARCHER | TRUTH TELLER
IS YOUR INSTITUTION A
Within educational, mental health, and government departments, organizations, and institutions around the country, power-based trauma — including systemic racial oppressive acts, sexual harassment and other trauma-related incidents — occur at alarmingly high rates. Many of these cases are not reported because survivors are afraid of the consequences and the stigma. Those who choose to report what happened to them often feel that the response they receive is insufficient and that they are left to deal with their trauma and fear alone. The inability to face challenges like these causes survivors additional pain and erodes the integrity of your institution.
My name is Faith and I am a United States Air Force veteran with a Ph.D. in Trauma and Disaster Relief. I develop power-based trauma prevention and intervention programs that are rooted in anti-racism, anti-sexism, and equitable practices. I use trauma-informed, relational-cultural, and somatic frameworks to help restore workplace trust which leads to measurable success that saves time and money, while simultaneously preventing burnout. I will research the climate in your institution and the specific challenges that you face, and I will develop an innovative prevention and intervention program that suits the needs of your organization and your community. All of my programs will meet your specific federal requirements. I will also train the professionals in your institution on how to help survivors of racial trauma, sexual harassment, etc. recover from the trauma.
The program I will create for you will help you empower survivors to report cases of power-based trauma, and will provide your staff with a roadmap of how to respond to such reports. The prevention strategies from the program will help you decrease, or eradicate altogether, such cases in your institution. All of my programs will also meet the specific federal mandates for power-based trauma training and responding to complaints.
Once your needs are accessed, I will use a systemic and collaborative process that allows me to tailor an innovative and custom-made program centered around one of my signature trainings. These unique programs empower agencies to take a proactive and sustainable approach to mitigate incidents of trauma and betrayal. These programs will also impel recruitment, retention, morale, and camaraderie of the organization.
Take the first step to transforming your institution into a place where individuals feel safe and protected. Build a culture of trust and support and watch your community work and serve with renewed energy and faith in your leadership!
