Travis Lloyd is a Speaker, Author, Trainer, and Coach who works to inspire progressive systematic change while promoting, setting and achieving big goals, both personally and professionally. Lloyd followed his passion for teaching and inspiring after an extensive career in health care as a Trauma Nurse, Psychiatric Nurse, Life Coach, and Mental Health Crisis Worker. This professional journey didn’t come easy as with many people, he faced a few challenges growing up. He now uses the stories of breaking through negative barriers to achieve more to connect to the hearts and minds of audience members. Such experiences lit a fire in Travis to remind those who work in public and private serving professions of their “Why”. Travis advocates that “no matter where you come from or where you want to go, it is possible”. He is the Vice President of the national non-profit Foster Care Alumni of America, Host of the Fostering Change Podcast, Author of Overcoming Emotional Trauma, and contributor to multiple national magazines.

Samantha Moe is a certified Parent and Life coach who grew up being told, “Everyone has a gift.” Her gift led her to completing a Master’s degree in Communication Disorders and embarking upon a journey for uncovering the gifts of children with intense behaviors. She quickly learned that in order to truly improve outcomes it was critical to explore outside-the-box strategies. Combining a strong passion for brain science, mindfulness, and transformation Samantha pioneered a new path for gaining children's cooperation and helping the toughest children develop self-control.

She coined this new path the Mad2Glad Blueprint and it is grounded in Samantha’s strong background of direct services to families. Her work has evolved into coaching parents of all types of children to dramatically reduce defiance and disrespect and re-establish confidence and authority. Inspired by caring professionals who are devoted to children's well-being, Samantha Moe is the creator of the leading Parent Coach Certification program that equips industry professionals with the tools and resources they need to transform their clients lives and find joy in their work.

In this presentation, Travis Lloyd shares his personal journey through a difficult childhood that led to foster care, group homes, and a stay in an inpatient mental health unit. The stories shared highlight specific moments when ‘Just 1 Person’ at a time empowered Travis to overcome negative circumstances. Mr. Lloyd's relationships spoken of include a foster parent, a teacher, and a kinship care-giver – all of whom demonstrated replicable trauma informed care principles through their actions.

The stories also share the reality of intergenerational cycles by describing the good and bad aspects of his family’s journey over the span of 20+ years.

The keynote ends with stories about professional experiences from Mr. Lloyd’s time as an inpatient psychiatric RN and as a Mental Health Mobile Crisis Worker. The examples provide practical approaches for connecting and understanding in a trauma informed manner. This keynote will remind those who work in serving professions of their “why” and inspire a renewed sense of purpose.

From Mad2Glad: Trauma Informed Parenting Skills to Calm Challenging Behavior

Are you frustrated and stressed out because children in your care are defiant and disrespectful? Have you tried everything you can think of to improve listening and teamwork yet still feeling stuck? Discover new trauma informed parenting skills that are rooted in neuroscience and essential to creating a positive relationship with children so they can succeed in life. Reconnect with reasons why you became a parent in the first place and learn effective strategies for impulsivity and big emotions at home. During this interactive workshop, you will uncover strategies from the Mad2Glad Blueprint that are key to having calmer, more positive interactions and restoring your sanity. Facilitated by Samantha Moe, founder of The Mad2Glad Blueprint.

Crowdsourcing Trauma Informed Approaches

Using inspiration from SESSION 1, audience members will gather in small groups to explore ways of implementing trauma informed principles utilizing the 5 core aspects of daily life with children who have been impacted by trauma. These 5 core areas include: Calming the Fire, Showing You Care, Promoting Emotional Regulation, Self-care, and Short Term vs. Long Term Strategies of caring for kids entering your home. Each group will share findings with the crowd. Facilitated by Travis Lloyd and Samantha Moe.

TIC Action Plan!

During this interactive workshop audience members will be guided through a self-reflective process to identify opportunities for applying trauma informed principles in their own lives. This process will facilitate identifying the trauma informed steps that can be taken to welcome a child in your home, how to implement trauma informed principles within your daily routines, and action steps for your own self-care. Facilitated by Travis Lloyd and Samantha Moe

Strategic Sharing Panel

One of the most important aspects of learning to implement Trauma Informed Care (TIC) principles in everyday practice is finding ways to understand the “why” behind actions, lack of action, and the systems we live and work in. The Strategic Sharing Panel provides a nonjudgmental platform for service recipients to share their journeys in front of parents, professionals, direct care providers, administrators, and executives.
