This training will offer simple healing skills for work with children and families, for use with refugees and immigrants, and for self-care for those who accompany them. The program was developed by Capacitar International for work with people at the US/Mexico border and in many countries.

Based on popular education and energy-based methods, the Capacitar practices empower people to deal with traumatic stress, to stabilize and balance strong emotions and memories and to awaken their own healing process. The workshop will include practices, methods, theory and applications in the field.

The methods can be used by psychologists, social workers, teachers, counselors, mental health workers, volunteers, community agencies, legal aid workers and those accompanying refugees and immigrants.

Capacitar is an international network of empowerment and solidarity working in over 45 countries (in the Americas, Africa, Asia, the Middle East and Europe). Capacitar, a nonprofit organization based in California, teaches simple wellness practices to empower people to heal themselves, their families and communities.
