Trauma, Resiliency and Restorative Justice

Starts: November 27, 2018 9:00 am | Ends: November 27, 2018 4:00 pm

In this workshop we will examine various types of trauma and its manifestations. We will look at brain science and self-regulation as it relates to trauma. We will discuss historical and systemic trauma as a way to reframe an exclusively individual orientation. Rather than focusing on deficits, we will pay particular attention to protective factors and resiliency, including culturally specific ways of healing. Opportunities to practice restorative justice as a trauma informed practice will be offered throughout the day.

The workshop is intended for people who work with youth but could be beneficial to anybody. We will discuss self-care in the context of vicarious trauma.
