Cultivating Resiliency Where You Live and Work
Trauma is pervasive. And, it does not respect titles of ‘therapist,’ ‘teacher,’ ‘prisoner,’ or ‘patient.’
Resilient communities recognize how traumatic experiences and toxic stress affect us all, creating disconnection where healing should thrive. Traumatized Systems promotes clinical understanding and practical solutions for people generating therapeutic cultures. We will explore how healing can occur in traumatized brains and bodies as well as how we understand and confront unjust and bureaucratic systems that marginalize our most vulnerable neighbors.
