HOW IT WORKS

 
 

MindShield™ begins with teaching how stress, burnout and trauma (BrainBurn™) impacts the brain and body. The training further provides a tool set to empower individuals manage their stress response and quiet the mind: when the nervous system is at rest the brain can adapt, learn and grow from complex events. Finally, MindShield™ uses evidenced based communication skills set to support individuals in their relationships with both others and themselves.

By integrating Sensory Awareness, Mindfulness and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy individuals are able to not only emotionally self-regulate and shift into Executive function, but also to challenge the narratives that accompany all traumatic experiences.

MindShield™ is effective because it views BrainBurn™ & Trauma as a training issue not a mental health problem.

THE STRESS RESPONSE

What is BrainBurn™?

Stress is part of our lives and most of us have the internal resources to go back to a normal baseline of functioning once the stressful event has passed. When stress exposure is unusually intense, chronic, uncontrollable, and overwhelming, we are in a state of burnout. With time, the build-up of burnout due to unusually high levels of chronic stress develops into a vicious circle: we experience what we call BrainBurn.

MindShield™ is not just a different mental health solution, but a fully integrated practical training which provides an empowering and easy-to-use tools box that literally helps to shield the mind against acute stress, trauma and BrainBurn.
