South Africa Trauma Coaching Retreat 

October 12th - 19th, 2024 


Are you in a helping profession seeking to expand your expertise, looking for a career change, or interested in adding trauma-informed care as part of your existing coaching business?

Are you passionate about increasing support to people who suffer from trauma?

Would you like to learn how to approach interactions through a trauma-informed lens AND develop new competencies in a unique multicultural environment?

Trauma has gained attention as a cultural buzzword, yet few resources exist for trauma recovery.

Together ITTC and Orenda have created a coaching program specifically designed to bridge this gap.

Trauma coaches also play a role in the interruption of self-perpetuated intergenerational trauma through skill-based supports.
Have you dreamed of visiting South Africa to experience the richness of the country’s culture and wildlife; and to learn about the country’s ongoing efforts in building their nation?
We invite international professionals interested in becoming trauma coaches to travel to South Africa and join us in a trauma coaching training workshop to learn how to approach interactions through a trauma-informed lens and to develop new competencies in a unique multicultural environment.
  • Learn the principles of coaching within a multicultural context.
  • Experience high-level, specialized training on trauma-informed interactions.
  • Gain invaluable competence to be a trauma coach.
  • Share your knowledge and gain new insight through a global perspective.
  • Explore an exciting destination and immerse yourself in the culture.
  • Broaden your personal and professional network and build lasting friendships.

Participants will have the opportunity to learn from local organizations or providers, allowing for rich conversations about mental health within the South African context.


PROGRAM LOCATION: Cape Town, South Africa  

South Africa has emerged from its troubled and turbulent past into a healthy democratic country and the economic powerhouse of the African continent. At the same time, it’s a great place to witness a society going through dynamic changes, as it can still be considered both a developed and an underdeveloped country. South Africans forge a new identity, strongly embracing their unique multicultural character.
