Why Growth Works?
Growth Works’ mission is to help individuals and families restore hope, embrace change and improve their lives. Our incredible staff lives out this mission every day in their interactions with clients and community partners. Through training and consulting, we hope to share our decades of extensive experience with organizations, agencies, and in turn, the community at large.
Growth Works has been serving Wayne County for over 50 years. Many members of our staff have been members of the Growth Works family for 10-20 years, and even longer! We have witnessed the evolution treatment over the past 50 years and we have a wealth of experience to share with our community. We believe we have the opportunity to create stronger relationships and a stronger, more informed community as we share our expertise through the Growth Works Training and Consulting Program.
Training and Consulting Topics
Trauma Informed Care
Growth Works’ Trauma Informed Care trainings discuss how trauma affects our brain, and also the pathways and places that trauma is stored in our body. It’s important to identify how trauma affects us individually in order to prepare for future instances that could be traumatic. These trainings will teach you ways to create resiliency to toxic stress and techniques to help you and your team emotionally regulate and connect to your capacity to solve problems.
