Trauma-Informed Champions are SAFE!

Safety is at the heart of trauma-informed care in the home or the organization. Champions use a trauma-informed lens for individuals who have experienced trauma and create an atmosphere of safety, trust, and resources for healing and hope in the principles and practices of the organization. They apply the six key principles of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA): Safety, Trustworthiness, Peer Support, Collaboration, Empowerment, and Cultural.

Trauma-Informed Champions Take Care of Themselves

Helpers are 2x as likely to develop symptoms fo PTSD and burnout at a rate faster than anyone else. Champions take care of themselves through "micro" practices in every area of their lives: Sensory, Pleasure, Mental/Master, Physical, Emotional, Social, and Spiritual. Champions learn how to develop Deep Roots of Caring.

Trauma-Informed Champions Include Everyone!

Anyone can become a Trauma-Informed Champion...everyone in the organization needs to talk the same trauma-sensitive language. Seeing the individual from a special lens helps us develop a more consistent quality of care from the first contact to the last. Trauma-informed training for your organization can include front-line workers, administrative staff, volunteers, professional positions, the board, and everyone in between. A trauma-informed champion is YOU!

    Lead Family Healer

    Ron Huxley, LMFT

    I'm Ron Huxley, your lead Family Healer. I started in an effort to reach more families who are dealing with the challenges of Trauma, Anxiety, and Parenting. My personal mission is to provide Trauma-Informed tools for individuals and organizations that can empower and transform. I am a licensed Marriage and Family with 30+ years of experience as a Clinician, Mental Health Director, and Trauma-Informed Trainer. I have 4 adult children and 4 grandchildren (so far) and I was one of the earliest adopters of online education and therapy way before it was cool or acceptable. I believe that mental health issues are the next global pandemic and we are in desperate need of the tools necessary to stop the growing dilemma of toxic stress, fear, suicide, substance abuse, violence, and hatred our world is suffering. I have a strong personal faith and I bring powerful principles for inner healing to my work as an individual therapist/trainer and online courses. Don't worry, I don't preach but I do use some universal truths to help us heal body, mind, and spirit. I hope you enjoy this course...

Praise for Ron Huxley

"Mr. Huxley is a true family man and has applied lessons of life to his marriage and raising his children and step-children.
