The Basics of Trauma-informed Teaching
During this 2-hour inservice for student-facing staff, we create a practical and applicable understanding of trauma (triggered) reactions in the classroom and how teachers can leverage relational interactions to create the security and safety necessary for students to release and resolve their adaptive patterns of behavior.
A Healing Journey
During this 8-hour professional and personal development, participants explore the developmental stages of the human system and how adversity impacts the system, if left unresolved, and strengthens resilience, if processed. Participants will leave this training feeling empowered with knowledge and strategies for improving their own emotional regulation.
This 9-hour professional development is designed for clinicians and therapeutic practitioners and healers.
In this training, participants will learn the specific dynamics of trauma-responsive healing practices to ensure clients are benefitting from therapeutic practices on a somatic level. Participants will leave with a host of research-based, specific strategies for their professional practice.
During the course of this extensive 8-hour professional training, student-facing school staff are provided a deep understanding of developmental psychology and the lasting impacts of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs). Participants are also provided with an understanding of practical and applicable strategies for holding space for students exhibiting adaptive patterns of behavior in order to process and resolve issues of security and safety.
During this 12-hour, delivered over two 6-hour training days, participants learn practical means to work more effectively with other individuals through an understanding of attachment psychology and behavioral patterns.
Participants will learn how to leverage peer support, collaboration, and mutuality to ensure positive outcomes in relational interactions and increased healing and emotional regulation.
For organizations and community governments, the ability to provide in-house professional development and on-boarding training for new hires is vital for sustainability and implementation of trauma-informed care practices.
In this training, participants will learn how to effectively facilitate the training and assess the level of understanding of their own training participants. As we provide in-depth training to ensure quality trainers, our approach to this particular training requires participants to first engage in the training as students and then to engage in the training as facilitators, which doubles the total time for each level of training, but creates highly effective trainers.
I highly recommend this Trauma-informed training. I went through this training and found it to be very intense, yet beneficial. I refer to and think about this training often. If you work in public service, education, or in the wellness spheres, please consider it.
A la carte
Therapy sessions are scheduled for 60 minutes ($160) or 90 minutes ($235) to allow for a client to first establish somatic safety before engaging in Compassionate Inquiry to find the root of your adaptive patterns of behavior, uncover the meaning you created around the events in your life, and in processing and resolving these injuries, establish patterns of behavior that align with your goals.
Safe and Sound Protocol
This sound therapy can be accessed remotely from anywhere in the world. The Safe and Sound Protocol is an evidence-based therapeutic tool designed to reset the nervous system and return it to safety. Designed to work with other therapeutic approaches and modalities, the SSP features specially filtered music that stimulates the vagus nerve. Suitable for children and adults, the SSP has demonstrated benefits for individuals with trauma, anxiety, sensory processing differences, and much more.
SSP can be paired with psychotherapy or life coaching to maximize positive outcomes. To ensure therapeutic support, Gustav provides email support for remote SSP clients. So, if a trigger arises during listening, you can contact him to make sense of it all. You are not alone in this process, even though you are access the service remotely. You will have unlimited access to all SSP programs for 6 months.
If you are interested in pairing SSP with Psychotherapy or Coaching, that is outlined a little lower on the page.

A Perfect Pairing:
Safe and Sound Protocol
Sound Therapy and Psychotherapy/Coaching
This sound therapy can be accessed remotely from anywhere in the world, including during an in-person session. Many clients enjoy pairing SSP listening sessions within their therapy sessions to process anything that is brought up during the listening session.
Paired sessions include a customized combination of therapy/coaching and listening to meet your individual needs and provide adequate support for healing. For example, a paired session might be structured as 30 minutes of dialogue, 30 minutes of SSP listening, and then 30 minutes of compassionate dialogue to process and release the somatic tensions arising during the sound therapy or a paired session might be structured so that listening is done at home followed by a full 60 or 90-minute dialogic session to explore, process, and release the somatic tensions.
Pairing SSP with Compassionate Inquiry allows clients to feel completely supported through their healing journey.
Somatic therapies, such as yoga, allow for a rekindling of the connection between the mind, body, and soul, focusing intention and blood flow on the specific areas of tension, constriction, and unresolved traumas, deepening the body's ability to process and release the unresolved traumas of the past, freeing yourself into a more open and tolerant present and future. This makes yoga an excellent compliment to therapy!
We are proud to offer individualized, private yoga sessions to target the spaces in your body that are bound by emotional, psychological, and physical traumas. We provide trauma-based yoga in restorative, yin, vinyasa, and prenatal styles. (Click here for details.)
