Breaking Trauma’s Grasp Through Collective Action
May 21, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pmFree
The Thriving Communities Collaborative is excited to welcome back Naketta Lowery, CFLE of Sustainable Life Solutions and The Family Tree to lead us in exploring how we can collectively act to help break trauma’s grip on our communities. She will follow up on her previous discussion with the presentation, “Balancing Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) with Healthy Outcomes from Positive Experiences (HOPE).”
With the abundance of research studies & conversation focused on childhood trauma & adversity, it can be challenging to shift our thinking to things we can do to collectively add to the “solutions pot”. In balancing ACES with HOPE, we explore the importance of hope & optimism by delving into 3 key social structures that include building individual and community capabilities, understanding & building healthy attachment & belonging, & incorporating culture & spirituality into our daily resilience practices. During our time together, we will use the information shared to develop daily practices that spread HOPE & build resilience in the lives of children, families, & communities.
We hope you will join us.
