About this Event

*** Important: Course 1 is prerequisite for this Workshop***

This online 2 Part [3 hours per part] Workshop will be held via Zoom over the course of two days. April 6 and April 8, 2021.  9:00am to 12:00pm (PST) each day.

Are you tired of going to community meetings just to “sit and admire your own problems” time after time? Then this course is for you.   

Join us for Blueprint for Framing Your Community Initiative:  Create your own community-specific toolkit. 

Course Overview

This two-day hands-on workshop will help participants frame their own community initiatives, whereby community may be anything from a small group to a large organization. The workshop is not meant to create a fully fleshed work plan, as each community is different. Instead, participants will elevate questions and concepts of individual resilience to a community-wide level. They will examine their communities from the perspective of social determinants of health. Who in the community is present at the table to identify the risk factors present? Who makes the decisions, and who is at the receiving end? Are participants’ ideas of what needs to change in a community based on a limited personal scope of vision, or are they aligned with the views of those affected by the outcomes?

Communities are living systems, which is why linear approaches to addressing adversities often do not bring the desired results. This workshop uses the salmon cycle as a living systems model. As an indicator species, salmon teaches us a lot about survival, about safety and connection. This workshop’s goal is to provide a foundation and nourishing framework for enriching our communities now and in the future.

Course Objectives . Participants will:

Analyze how their own experiences (“imprinting”) affect themselves and those around them in the community.

Visualize and describe what would make their communities more hospitable.

Assess diversity and representation needs through the lens of Shared Leadership.

Examine how known resilience concepts, such as KISS, apply on a community level.
