Building Trauma-Informed and Resilient Communities: Pastoral and Ministry Responses
Join us December 7, 2018, 9:00am – 12:00pm for this workshop to increase your awareness and knowledge of trauma, including psychological and vicarious trauma. You will learn key principles of a trauma-informed approach. Additionally, the workshop will provide practical and evidence-based techniques for pastors and ministries to develop trauma-informed and resilient communities. A trauma-informed and resilient approach is one where communities, organizations, programs, and systems: (1) realize the prevalence and impact of trauma; (2) recognize the signs and symptoms of trauma in individuals, families, and groups; (3) respond by integrating the knowledge about trauma into policies, procedures, and practices; and (4) resist practices that could cause more harm (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, 2018).
