Trauma Resources International (“TRI”), RRT&C’s non-profit arm, is assisting the hurricane relief efforts in Haiti. We are partnering with FOUNDATION IDEO, who we worked alongside following the catastrophic earthquake of 2010, and through many years of organized violence. This locally-based NGO is Haiti’s premier provider of culturally appropriate mental health services for adults and children. If you are interested in donating to our efforts, please click the link below to be redirected to Amber’s letter on the TRI site.
The mission of Restorative Resources Training & Consulting (“RRT&C”) is to collaborate with existing individual and communal resources to support systems of healing and well-being that promote resiliency, are culturally congruent and respectful. From individual psychotherapy to organizational development, I utilize a strength-based, systemic approach. The spirit of all RRT&C’s work is reciprocity.
Amber’s latest podcast: A Tool Kit for Post Election Distress Syndrome with Amber Gray.Have you felt immobilized by the results of this presidential election? Shut down? Off-balance? Somatic psychologist, Amber Gray, talks with Sharon Weil about how terror and fear affect the body, creating either a shutting down response or an impulse towards fight or flight action. She provides essential and helpful insight and tools for finding calm, restoration, and a return to mobility and social engagement after difficult events. These tools apply to any stressful, shocking, or life-altering change. Listen and find comfort in her words.
