Dispelling the Myths around Trauma for Coaches  

Trauma has become front and center in many of our lives, whether we realize it or not.

As a coach, you may wonder ‘why do I need to know about trauma?’. When the topic of trauma first comes up in conversation with coaches, this is a common response.

But prior to the pandemic, many studies including CDC-Kaiser Adverse Childhood Experiences Study found 2 out of 3 participants had one traumatic event in their lives and 20% have had three or more.  You can find out more further information on trauma studies can be found here

Over the last few years, across the world people have endured a pandemic, war, sudden losses of loved ones, financial uncertainty and relationship break downs.

In this webinar, which is designed for coaches and draws on up-to-date research in the field, we begin to address what trauma is, so we can dispel many of the myths around it.

In this webinar, you will learn:  

  • How to define trauma vs what is traumatic
    • Why knowing what trauma is, helps you as a coach
    • The difference between trauma and stress
    • How to answer the question ‘Is this coachable?’
