Workshops

Becoming a Trauma-Informed and -Responsive Church and Community

As a part of the Linking Systems of Care for children and families, Jess Mayrer and I will be bringing an eight-module training to help us to learn about and implement trauma-informed practices that help us to be a more active part of the healing of our neighbors in church and throughout our communities. Come learn with us solely via Zoom about seven key principles – around Safety; Trustworthiness and transparency; Peer support; Collaboration and mutuality; Empowerment, voice, and choice; Equity for high-risk populations; and Leadership, administrative support, and policies – and practices that can bring about healing and not retraumatize.  What we learn here can bring meaningful change in our churches, with our community ministry partners, and within the organizations and systems of which we are a part.  Please contact me at [email protected] or 406-239-7655 for more information, and plan to join us in this important work,(and CEUs may be available to you).
