Making It Real is…
A team-based training course for congregate care programs serving children. This means teams in residential facilities, schools, hospitals, day treatment programs, group treatment, foster care… any setting in which you are both offering treatment and managing behavior.
Making the change to trauma-informed care involves a genuine paradigm switch and it is hard to do. It is not enough to send a few staff to a training about trauma. We need specific strategies to address all the parts of what we do.
Making It Real! is based on Pat Wilcox’s book, Trauma-Informed Care: the Restorative Approach
Making It Real offers teams strategies.
Making It Real is a unique course- there is nothing else like it.
It is NOT a course in which individuals go through the course and get some new knowledge about trauma and how it affects the brain. Those courses are very valuable.
But that’s not what this is.
Making It Real is a course for a TEAM to IMPROVE THEIR TREATMENT. As a team, you work through it together. You learn from the videos. The Resources enlarge your options and possibilities.
And then you take action.
Every implementation plan starts with exploration and discussion for the team. Then, the team makes a plan, describes the action steps, decides who will take the lead, and sets a review date.
Then they take action!
The power is in the thinking and the discussion. And the super power is in the action. You actually change what you do. And your treatment becomes more effective, produces better results, and you have more satisfied and fulfilled employees.
Getting ready to start your transformation, including:
Discover your starting point and communicate your intent to all your stakeholders.
Deciding what training system to use for your staff and planning how to do it.
Creating a milieu that provides effective treatment.
Improving our work as individuals and as a team.
How our clinicians can do the best work with the clients, families and within the team.

Cultivating a trauma-informed lens for our families and foster families.
Attention to staff vicarious traumatization is crucial to successful treatment.
Making sure this approach is sustained through changing policies and procedures.
Using screening tools, evidence based practices and body-based intervention to achieve lasting change.
How do we celebrate our achievements and communicate our results to all stakeholders? How do we sustain trauma-informed care in the future?
