Community Trainings & Workshops

Community Trainings & Workshops

The Lyda Hill Institute for Human Resilience provides trainings and workshops to the community to assist organizations in becoming trauma-informed and resilience-informed. As stress and trauma impact many professions and organizations, employees can benefit from gaining a basic understanding of the effects of stress, as well as how to build and foster resilience in themselves and within their organization.

These trainings are ideal for any organization exposed to stress or trauma, including emergency-response and law enforcement organizations, healthcare providers, mental health centers, victim advocacy organizations, schools, and more.

Ensuring that a workforce is trauma-informed and resilience-informed can reduce burnout, primary and secondary traumatic stress, and negative health outcomes related to stress within the workplace. In-turn, this can reduce employee turnover and build trust and support within the organization.


Trainings and Workshops

Trainings are provided in one-topic, one-hour blocks. Workshops are more interactive and cover several topics, with virtual workbooks and resources provided. Trainings and workshops are delivered through Zoom.

We will work with your organization to ensure that trainings and workshop materials are up-to-date and relevant to your industry. Topics may include (but are not limited to):

  • The biology of stress
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Other mental health concerns
  • Substance use
  • The Stress Injury Continuum
  • Secondary traumatic stress
  • Compassion fatigue/burnout
  • Suicide prevention
  • De-escalation techniques
  • Resilience
  • Fostering resilience in self and the organization
  • Key wellness strengths

"In this time of the "great resignation," any employer who truly cares about productivity and the mental well-being of their teams should consider this type of training. It rejuvenates morale and highlights how to be a better human."

"I think we all need this reminder that things are difficult, but there are ways we can rise above and deal with it and together we are better than alone. So many on the chat provided helpful insight and solutions."

"I would recommend to someone who is needing to learn about how to cope with stress in their family."

"Just appreciated them really caring about children’s emotional well-being and advocated for them, giving us insights to why they might be acting up and to choose our battles and how just letting go of certain expectations is OK and good."
