Episode #9 - How To Be Trauma-Informed

In this episode, Patricia speaks with Stevie McBride to help us understand in practical terms what we might do in our lives to be trauma-informed while interacting with a traumatized child.

Stevie McBride is a Guidance Center clinician from It’s About T.I.M.E., a Trauma Informed Movement in Education. It’s About T.I.M.E. is a program that uses trauma research to provide educators the tools to create trauma informed cultures on primary school campuses.

A Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist at The Guidance Center, Stevie provided intensive treatment to children and families in our Long Beach clinic for many years, before transferring to the It’s About T.I.M.E. program two years ago. He currently serves as the trauma-informed consultant at Barton Elementary School in Long Beach.
