Surviving Trauma can be a confusing struggle for many, either in our daily lives, in our work, our interactions with others.   Working with individuals with a history of significant trauma  can also be a challenge for many physicians, nurses, administrators,  front-line workers, teachers, employers, foster or adoptive parents. All too often, how we feel like reacting to difficult interactions, or how we think we should react, only deepens the cycle of pain when one of us has had Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) or significant trauma in our past.

We are a non-profit organization dedicated to providing affordable and practical neuroscience-based education and resources to empower health care workers, administrators, counsellors, teachers parents, workers, professionals, organizations, and communities that work with the after-effects of trauma. We develop simple tools to help people understand what they are seeing and feeling in order to better respond to stressful situations, decrease the chance of contributing to trauma cycles, improve their resiliency, and strengthen one's chances of healing past the cycle of trauma.

Physicians who have attended previous Beyond the Cycle of Trauma Institute (BeytCot) workshops or courses who are interested in attending advanced training in Trauma or train-the-trainer education with us will need to apply for Membership. For more information, please contact:

We also offer courses  for organizations wishing to improve inter-collegial and front-line interactions, as well as to develop a standard for their professionals or workers in trauma-informed practice. All profits are used to continue supporting this education through Beyond the Cycle of Trauma Institute (BeytCot) Workshops, Courses and Resources.
