We are Origins, a training and consulting firm focused on supporting leaders in their journey to build more resilient organizations and communities through the integration of a trauma-informed approach. Our work is informed by the original Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Study, the neurobiology of toxic stress, the impact of social and historical trauma, and the science of resilience. We provide training to executives, management and supervisors, direct service professionals and para-professionals, caregivers, and community members across sectors aimed at shifting the narrative of how we understand health and behavior. Our clients represent industries and agencies including health care, education, community and social welfare, law enforcement, and parenting/caregiving.
At Origins, we believe that becoming a resilient organization is more than completing a checklist. Whether organizations are interested in a stand-alone training session or a broader set of consulting services, we believe the path to resilience starts with a solid foundation in the key concepts behind a trauma-informed and resilience-building approach. Our Basics training (now available online here) provides an overview of these concepts, including the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) study framework, social and historical trauma, the brain and body and the science of resilience.
All of our trainings incorporate a belief in the following key principles:
We come to all of our trainings with the human-centered design philosophy that "the people who face the problems everyday are the ones who hold the key to their answer."
