Helping organizations to become trauma-informed, trauma-responsive, and trauma-resilient!
What is Creating PRESENCE?
Creating PRESENCE is a new online organizational and clinical approach for creating trauma-informed, trauma responsive and trauma resilient organizations.
The Objectives of Creating PRESENCE
The PRESENCE Model provides everyone in an organization with some basic knowledge about trauma, adversity and stress and advances the emergence of trauma-informed values, knowledge, practice and skills.
The Unique Benefits of the PRESENCE Model
It is cost-effective, it gives control of the process to your organization, and there is self-help available by trained PRESENCE coaches. The success will be determined by the extent of the organizational commitment and alignment.
The PRESENCE Acronym
P.R.E.S.E.N.C.E. is an acronym for linked guiding values that consistently undergird and inform practice:
- Partnership and Power
- Reverence and Restoration
- Emotional Wisdom and Empathy
- Safety and Social Responsibility
- Embodiment and Enactment
- Nature and Nurture
- Culture and Complexity
- Emergence and Evolution
The Learned Skills of PRESENCE
Each set of values is associated with a knowledge base and a set of universally applied tools that are designed in sequence to provide: brain regulation skills, communication tools, group engagement tools, and complexity management skills.
The PRESENCE Approach and Tracks
PRESENCE Implementation uses a hybrid approach, depending largely on distance learning and web-based consultation in order to make the adoption of this approach cost-effective. An Introductory Course will help get all staff on the same page.
