The journey of healing from trauma is a process. It is an individual process. No two people are alike, no two traumas are alike. There are many steps to this journey, and we are each at our own place on that path of healing.

This workshop is designed to provide a basic understanding of the effects of trauma as well as create a safe space for participants to recognize their personal journey of healing trauma, thus offering them an opportunity to take a next step.

Friday’s session will educate participants on trauma theory and will also involve a group activity.

On Saturday, participants will go more deeply into their healing journey and work with their process both individually and as a group.

We ask participants to register for this workshop only if they are able attend both sessions.
