This week La Posada staff participated in Trauma Informed Care training to fortify support services to all our guests. The training was led by human rights advocate Dr. Selma Yznaga, associate professor of counseling at The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley. The training centered on the 4 R’s of trauma-informed care – realize, recognize, respond and resist re-traumatization. For many of La Posada’s guests, their arrival starts the unfolding of a long resettlement journey, simultaneously recovering from past traumas in their home country and during their migration. La Posada is very grateful for this training and for Dr. Selma, who is also a volunteer.
