About the Training

The lasting impacts of historical and intergenerational trauma contribute to the contemporary trauma we see in communities today. You don’t have to look far to see the need for community healing and wellness; poverty, suicide, addiction, violence, unhealthy relationships, chronic negativity, apathy and more. How do you address this? What do you do? Where do you begin? How do you get the community engaged and involved?

This three-day interactive training will provide an awareness and understanding of the impacts of trauma, how trauma plays out in the workplace and the importance of integrating healing and tools to live a balanced life. Strategies for integrating these concepts into your personal life, work life and the community will be the focus of the three days.

Major change has to happen throughout Indian Country if we want to impact the negative statistics that have become our norm. We have to do things differently. We have to understand trauma and we have to make healing the norm. We have to implement strategies that transcend departments, programs, budgets, cultural norms, age groups and beyond.
