Biofeedback Awareness Training

ROI knows that people are not to blame for the trauma and stress that

impacts them and that resilience is an inner strength, regardless of

background.

Often when people are coping with stress, society (schools,

organizations, family systems) responds with pervasive responses

such as punishment, isolation, and silence. This leads to exclusion

from supportive services and more exposure to unsafe environments.

Punitive and unsupportive environments increase toxic stress and

prevent the chance for healing.

Examples of ACEs include abuse and neglect. These experiences can

lead to maladaptive coping strategies, poor impulse control, and/or

criminalized behavior.1

ACEs research found a positive association

between the number of ACEs experienced and the likelihood of

mental illness, alcoholism, and drug use.2

Research also suggests that

toxic stress affects the development of self-regulation and executive

function skills (ie. the ability to plan, focus, remember instructions,

and juggle tasks).3

These skills are fundamental for success in

institutions, like schools, and for building relationships.
