This day long training, sponsored by and for the NYC Department of Youth and Community Development, will bring agency professionals together to gain a greater understanding of trauma and its psychological impacts, provide youth development staff with ways to take social action through service in order to address community trauma, and learn valuable techniques for stress reduction and self-care. I will be responsible for delivering two hour-long training sessions for this day, one on racial trauma and the other on engaging traumatized youth. 

If interested in attending, let me know and I'll ask.

Below is the official description of the event:

In our individual lives, our communities and our society many of us have experienced the pain of trauma and traumatic events. We may find ourselves wondering how we can heal the wounds opened by these events, take action toward preventing traumatic incidents from happening within our own communities, and take care of ourselves in light of such tragic events.  

What can we do to create more trauma-informed programs for our youth and their community?

How can we regain safety, connection and hope for our traumatized youth, families, and communities?

How do we help to heal ourselves so that we can better serve others? 

Healing the Hurt is a learning day designed to bring agency professionals together to gain a greater understanding of trauma and its psychological impacts, provide youth development staff with ways to take social action through service in order to address community trauma, and learn valuable techniques for stress reduction and self-care.  Through increased awareness and understanding, we can begin healing together and stand together as agents of change through social action.
