Relaxation and self-regulation
Safe, trustworthy relationships
Sharing life stories honestly
When people have these things in place, they are resilient. At ICTG, we call these key practices calming, connecting, and communicating. You can learn more about them in our Resource Guides available on the ICTG Training page.
If you have been wondering how to respond to traumatic events in your community or across the nation, create or continue growing these three practices in your life and encourage them among persons around you. Be a reliable, trustworthy adult. Practice calming yourself amid storms and conflict. Practice expressing your story, without hyperbole and without omission.
By learning these three practices, persons discover how to be both affected and response-able to trauma and healing.
