Helping nonprofit organizations promote a healthy workplace culture

Trauma Stewardship Training for Nonprofit Professionals

CLC’s Trauma Stewardship Training provides education for organizations and their employees through cognitive behavioral techniques that reduce burnout, fatigue, and despair. Our curriculum pulls from evidence-based models to help individuals identify and address occupational stress and secondary trauma. Trainees will learn tools, skills, and information for self-care in order to remain effective at caring for others and better manage challenges in the workplace and in personal life.

Custom Designed Curriculum 


CLC programs are custom designed to fit the need of every client. Each class incorporates a lesson in neuroscience, kinesthetic movement, and cognitive behavioral exercises. We provide individuals with tools to address challenging issues associated with nonprofit work such as work overload, secondary traumatic stress, deadline pressures, funding challenges, role stressors, underutilization of abilities, and communication trials with coworkers and clients.

Our curriculum walks trainees through our three-step structure – Science, Exercise for the Brain and Extension of Self (SEE) – where individuals learn to cope with stress through better impulse control, increased communication skills, less anger, healthier habits, improved sleep, increased self-appreciation, and addressing addictive behaviors.

Pre & post evaluations are included with every CLC training. When possible, quantitative measures will be taken for data analysis contributing to ongoing research in the field of neuroscience.
