Offering bounce building resources, because resilient families and communities grow resilient kids!
Let’s face it, life is just plain hard sometimes! Everyone will experience adversity at some point. Emotional capacity is the key to navigating adversity well. The more emotional capacity you have, the more hardship you can handle before you get overwhelmed and either melt down, shut down or blow up. The good news is that it is never too late to build more emotional capacity.
Healing Expressions is committed to resourcing families and communities who want to become more resilient and trauma-informed because we believe that resilient communities and families grow resilient kids!

Healing ExpressionsChildren’s Programs
Healing Expressions, LLC offers three trauma-informed Children’s Program Manuals designed to equip facilitators to run bounce building small groups for kids. Manuals are sold with training packages. Stefanie Hinman, ATR-BC, BCCC, will work with you to determine which manual and training package is right for your organization then train your organization on the material. The material included in this ‘train-the-trainer’ program includes the neurobiology of trauma, resilience skills that increase joy and emotional capacity, and how to teach the facets of resilience to kids of all ages, regardless of trauma history.
These Children’s Program Manuals teach resiliency skills in fun and creative ways, engaging both the head and the heart through the hands. Skills are presented through metaphors and story then processed through art and creative expression. Storytelling engages both the right and left hemispheres of the brain. Putting words together with feelings, experiences, and expressions build connections in the brain that help children process their own personal story and learn new skills.
