EXPLORING HEALING
CENTERED ENGAGEMENT

This workshop will focus on the shift from the term “trauma-informed care” as it does not encompass the totality of one’s experience and focused only on harm, injury, and trauma. Current formulations of trauma-informed care presume that the trauma is an individual experience, rather than a collective one. Based on the article from Shawn Ginwright Ph.D. entitled “The Future of Healing: Shifting From Trauma-Informed Care to Healing Centered Engagement”, this workshop will provide tools for an approach that allows practitioners to approach trauma with a fresh lens that promotes a holistic and cultural view of healing from traumatic experiences and environments. This approach is called Healing Centered Engagement.

  • Understand key differences between a healing centered & trauma-informed approach to care.

  • Identify 3 ways to address the root causes of trauma in communities

  • Identify 3 ways to improve strategies and outcomes with clients using HCE
