WORKSHOP: Trauma 101: Signs, Symptoms & Causes

Lately, we’ve been hearing the word trauma used with more frequency. But what exactly is trauma and what is its impact, particularly upon communities of color? This workshop will provide a comprehensive definition of trauma, the signs, symptoms and root causes of trauma and explore healing strategies. We will look at trauma through the lens of current issues such as COVID-19, repeated episodes of police brutality and racism.

WORKSHOP: Resetting Your Norms

We have been navigating uncharted waters over the last few months, between COVID19, the murder of George Floyd (and other Black and Brown people) and the reigniting of the Civil Rights Movement; we’ve been forced to reset ourselves and adapt to a new normal. As we begin to adapt to a “New Normal” let’s start by engaging in a norm setting workshop that will help us learn how to have honest  and courageous dialogues with ourselves and others. It’s time to reset our NORMS.
