Recently I was speaking with a friend who attended a conference on trauma-informed care. As we spoke I realized that I have been offering trauma-informed care during the past 12 years through Second Chance to Live. Trauma-informed care to empower the individual, not the trauma.
In May 1985 I obtained my undergraduate degree (BA) in Theology with a minor in Physical Education/Recreation. In December 1990 I obtained my graduate (master’s degree) in Rehabilitation Counseling. In December 1990 I also obtained my national credentials as a CRC (certified rehabilitation counselor).
My open skull fracture and traumatic brain injury occurred in 1967 in an automobile accident when I was 10 years old. About Page
Over the course of the past 33 years, I have been working to involve my mind, body, soul, spirit, and emotions in my own individual ongoing recovery process.
Through my experience, I have come to realize that ongoing traumatic or acquired brain injury recovery needs to involve the individual’s body, soul, spirit, mind, and emotions.
During the past 12 years, Second Chance to Live has sought to encourage, motivate, empower and share hope through holistic healing.
A holistic healing process to offer trauma-informed care.
