From Chaos to Calm

Turning Trauma Research into Practice

In order to take our situations from chaos to calm we welcome awareness between brain health and behavior by connecting the Social Emotional AlphabetTM to trauma-brain research. All past experiences, circumstances & stories determine physical and emotional regulation which can be communicated through anger, defiance and misunderstood intent. Learning the art of responding rather than reacting starts with self-regulation skills, trauma-brain awareness and a proactive mindset that resets everyday. Using eight letters of Heidy’s Social Emotional AlphabetTM combined with the research of Dr. Bruce Perry, Dr. Lori Desautels, Dr. Bessel van der Kolk, Brené Brown & others you will gain necessary insight into the why behind behavior and learn what you can control with your Actions, Words & Expressions (AWE).


  • Leave with an understanding of how the brain works and strategies we can follow to help kids become available to learn & take care of ourselves at the same time

  • Focus on eight letters of the Social Emotional AlphabetTM partnered with brain-research to take away informed strategies & perspectives

  • Be able to discuss the needs of our kids and plan for those needs rather than blame things out of our control
