Healing Centered Engagement

Tuesday, March 05, 2024
12:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Online
Description   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 focuses 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 root causes of trauma in communities -3 ways to improve strategies and outcomes with clients using HCE This training is interactive; please have a microphone and webcam. The Illinois Department of Human Services funds this training and is only open to license-funded treatment professionals in the state of Illinois.  If you have any questions, please contact Maddie Seigfried by email at madison.mccormick@prevention.org or by phone at 217.993.2889.
