What We Mean by "Trauma Supportive"  

Being that many of our individual coaching clients bridge the support they are receiving from a clinician with our trauma supportive coaching, we have found it important to make the distinction between what we do in the context of trauma support and what clinicians do in the context of trauma-specific-treatment.
  • Share the Flame LLC provides coaching support through inquiry to explore what is happening in the present then support the client towards an empowered solution forward focus built on "the client's own anticipation of an improvement in personal and professional development (Passmore and Sinclair, 2020)"; whereas, clinicians work from a thorough exploration of one's past towards what is needed to be in one's now while "being primarily problem focused.. through  counseling/therapy sessions (Passmore and Sinclair, 2020)".  Both coaches and clinicians focus on establishing what can create a container for safety and trust for the client. Passmore and Sinclair (2020) also name the following additional bridges that exist between coaching and therapy:
    • " both are  concerned about the relationship,"
    • " both recognize the need for engagement or client commitment,"
    • " both rely on the practitioner's self-awareness to facilitate change," 
    •    both desire "to keep the conversation moving forward".
  • Share the Flame LLC's coaching-consulting-speaking options are not clinical nor medical therapy (clinical and medical therapy are defined as time spent with what the field calls, a mental health therapist).
  • Share the Flame LLC desires to emphasize that a clinician, coach, educator, etc. all can become trauma responsive and become a trauma informed practitioner; however, only a mental health clinician can do trauma- specific treatment.
  • Share the Flame LLC is aware that many clients find our trauma support to be therapeutic; however, not in a medical therapy sense instead, seeing it as an attempt to improve a human condition.
  • Share the Flame LLC understands that clinical and coaching terminology to describe trauma support has casually been used at times interchangeably within some psychological circles; however, scholarly research in the field of psychology clearly distinguishes support amongst trauma responsiveness, trauma informed and trauma- specific- treatment:
    • TRAUMA RESPONSIVENESS, means we, here at Share the Flame LLC explore the effects of trauma on learning, behavior, and developing relationships. We do this through a trauma informed lens. 
    • TRAUMA-INFORMED LENS we use here at Share the Flame LLC is to support through an awareness of the presence of trauma and to recognize how trauma affects individuals-groups-organizations from a sociocultural, sociopolitical and sociohistorical context through institutional, structural and organizational culture, systems, and practices.
    • TRAUMA-SPECIFIC-TREATMENT refers to clinical interventions, diagnosis and treatment of symptoms or syndromes related to trauma. We here at Share the Flame LLC are not clinicians and do not diagnose or treat symptoms.
  • Share the Flame LLC recommends that if you are having issues with trauma that require a diagnosis and medical intervention, then please first acquire assistance through clinical support and intervention from a trauma- specific treatment clinician such as a licensed counselor, psychotherapist, psychologist, and or psychiatrist.

EXECUTIVE COACHING
Justice-Equity-Diversity-Inclusion leadership practices, inclusive of "psychological skills and [developmental] methods within a trauma responsive and trauma informed lens, will be employed in a one-on-one [and or group] relationship to help someone become a more effective manager or C-Suite leader. These skills are typically applied to a specific present-moment work-related issue(s)...in a way that enable(s) the client to incorporate them into [their] permanent management or C-Suite leadership repertoire (Peltier, 2010)."
SOMATIC COLLECTIVE L.E.A.D. RACIAL EQUITY TEAM COACHING
Organizations can provide at all levels of the organization space for racial equity informed somatic trauma support for the Black, Brown, and Indigenous bodies in their workspaces to process oppression including racialized trauma and minoritization at the intersections in enclaved collectives. On the other side of that, have those who desire to provide support and prevent retraumatization to explore in enclaved experiences their own systemic power and privilege including in the context of race.
SYSTEMS CHANGE CONSULTING 
In our partnering with organizations, we identify which systems are trauma producing, then customize to disrupt and interrogate systemically oppressive learning, behavior, relationships within these climates then creatively support to shift the organization and its members towards justice-equity-diversity-inclusion systems change with the goal of becoming nonperformative.
Services may include:
  • Promote restorative- transformational- collective healing justice inclusive of somatic practices which can lead to deeper layers of processing which can create movement towards sustainable accountability and repair of traumatization and harm.
  • Create developmental integration of anti-oppression frameworks within system practices on professional and organizational levels.
  • Incorporate justice-racial equity- diversity-inclusion practices and principles that create and cultivate movement towards anti-racism, anti-oppressive, anti-exclusionary, and anti-biased organizational climates.
  • Explore how to incorporate an ongoing integration of and accountability to nonperformative anti-racism, anti-oppression decision- making, messaging, policy creation, and implementation.

 Personal-Professional Coaching 

Share the Flame LLC partners to creatively ignite individuals on personal/professional levels and supports them to unite their strengths at the intersections through a trauma supportive lens.
 
WHY A FOCUS ON TRAUMA SUPPORT THROUGH COACHING? 
The International Coaching Federation, cited "According to Gallup research, seven out of ten people worldwide report that they are struggling or suffering. Traumatic experiences often leave lasting effects and while the coaching profession is not to be confused with therapy, research is informing how coaches can support individuals who have experienced traumatic events." 
 
DEVELOPMENTAL LIFE COACHING
Coachees will:
Explore at the intersections how trauma impacts and influences life choices, learning, behavior, and relationships while exploring how one can shift and create movement towards transcending the impact of trauma in one's life visions, dreams, desires, career, education, workplace, day to day lived experiences, and relationships. 
 
RACIALIZED TRAUMA/MINORITIZATION COACHING
Coachees will: 
Explore through mind and body connection how oppression inclusive of racialized trauma- minoritization impacts behavior, learning, and environments in the lives of those who identify as Black, Brown, and Indigenous within their workplaces, their relationships and society.
On the other side of this Dr. Debi has those who identify as "systemically dominant (Jenkins 1995-Present)" intentionally process "white body supremacy, antiblackness, and racialized hierarchy (Resmaa Menakem, 2017)." 
 
BETRAYED PARTNER  COACHING
Coachees will:
"Have feelings-emotions resolved while processing healing as a betrayed partner through the Multidimensional Partner Trauma Model (MPTM) (APSATS, 2019)." 
 
SOMATIC INTEGRATION COACHING
Coachees will:
Explore mind, body, heart, soul, and spirit to identify needs for radical love inclusive of radical selfcare, radical collective care, and radical communal care within a somatic neurobiological trauma responsive framework.
