Trauma-Sensitive Programming: Using Mindfulness to Create Safe Space

This one-hour webinar will include topics such as yoga, meditation, self-defense, mindfulness, self-care, non-violent intervention, and mental health first aid training. We will explore different populations that may be living with trauma and how to make programs accessible for everyone.
