PIPE Advanced One Day Training: Using PIPE Gently – PIPE and Trauma Informed Practices


SKU: N/A Category:


The Pipe advanced training’s are for PIPE users who have already attended the 2 day PIPE training or the Nurse Family Partnership Unit 2 training and want to increase their knowledge, skills and comfort level in using the PIPE curriculum.

Using PIPE Gently will help participants identify indicators of trauma. Participants will gain confidence in using PIPE to mentor and support parents who have experienced trauma. Participants will explore and practice de-escalation strategies, grounding, and mindfulness as ways to regulate both themselves and their parents.

As a result of this training participants will:

  • Have a working definition of trauma and its components
  • Identify and understand trauma informed practices
  • Identify and understand how the PIPE threads correlate with trauma informed practices
  • Recognize behaviors that may indicate a parent has experienced trauma(s)
  • Explore ways of being with a person who has experienced trauma
  • Gain confidence in using PIPE gently to mentor and support parents in parenting who have experienced trauma(s)
  • Practice de-escalation strategies, grounding, and mindfulness
  • Understand the need for realistic expectations for themselves and for the parents they are working with

This training was created with the support of Stacey Bromberg, PhD and based on the “Trauma-Informed Toolkit, Second Edition, “Dialectical Behavior Skills Workbook” and “The Difference Between Self-Compassion and Self-Esteem” by Kristen Neff PhD.

What participants are saying.

“This PIPE training was very valuable and applicable to my practice. I learned some new approaches despite using this program for the last 16 years. The most useful features of the training were acknowledging the need for self-care/self compassion and opportunities to reflect, discuss and enjoy.” Maureen, Jefferson County Public Health, CO

“I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed and learned from the training today. This PIPE training was great!” Julie, Casa de los Ninos, Tucson, AZ

“I was surprised that planning a gentle PIPE session was not as challenging as I thought.” NFP nurse, Boynton Beach, FL


The sessions will begin at 8:30 a.m. each day and end by 5 p.m.

Please note that lunch is on your own.

 You will need to bring your PIPE Curriculum with you to this training. If you have purchased curriculum it will be waiting for you at the training.
