Workshop (virtual): Trauma Healing
Thursday Oct 7, 2021 @ 5:30pm - 8:30pm
WOVEN is excited to host this workshop lead by The Trauma Healing Project. The Trauma Healing Project is a local nonprofit in Eugene Oregon who envisions a vibrant and connected community where anyone impacted by violence, abuse or other trauma receives the support and attention they need to fully recover and to reach their highest potential. They work with community members, professionals and organizations to raise awareness and to identify, develop, support and promote many options for healing and for preventing trauma.
In this very interactive workshop we will cover the prevalence and impact of trauma on individuals, organizations and communities. Information gained from local survivors on what happened, what hurt, what helped and how to be better supporters of healing will be presented. We will cover practical ways to prevent further trauma and to support and promote healing, including ways to address stages of grief and emotional regulation.
Participants will identify, learn and practice strategies they can use in their personal and professional lives to support survivors and build resilience, and to support the health and well-being of staff and organizations serving survivors of trauma.
