Everyday connections are more important than we ever believed. Science tells us that relationships have the power to shape our brains. Relationships help us learn better, work better, parent better. When we experience tough times, relationships help us heal. With each connection, we develop a healthier, stronger community. Connections Matter and Creating Resilience Through Connections are trainings designed to engage community members in building caring connections to improve resiliency, prevent childhood trauma and understand how our interactions with others can support those who have experienced trauma. Creating Resilience Through Connections explores how the connections we make in life profoundly impact our brain’s ability to grow and our own abilities to cope and thrive. This is done through a training curriculum that educates participants on adverse childhood experiences, trauma, brain development, and resilience. We ultimately strive to promote the building of more resilient, compassionate, and trauma-informed communities – thus allowing all children and individuals to succeed. 

Schedule Your Custom Resilience Training

Individual    TRAININGS

Are you interested in learning more about ACEs and resilience for personal reasons?  We invite you to join us for a community coffee, and any of our scheduled trainings above.  We talk with other attendees about ACEs, what resiliency looks like and plan for future endeavors. 


Are you a business owner interested in improving staff and customer relations?  #RiseUp offers free, confidential training on-site.  Our basics start with ACEs and resilience awareness and then move on to such topics as mindfulness, inclusivity and cultural awareness.  We have trainers ready to present you with team building and mindfulness exercises.  

Community    TRAININGS

Are you in charge of developing programs for your civic group or church?  Rise Up can tailor an introduction based on your time frame.  We offer an overall review of the Rise Up movement or we can breakdown our offerings and center our discussions on just one topic.  Infographics and simple exercises can be included with any program.   Evenings or weekend training being considered?  No problem.  We have a trainer for that!
