Event description

Description

Community members invested in transforming psychological trauma into nonviolent power for positive, productive racial justice action will have the opportunity to gain skills in psychological first aid, Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), unpack and understand psychological trauma, learn and explore how trauma manifests itself inside and outside the mind, body and spirit, and learn strategies to heal trauma at personal and community levels.

By engaging in lectures, experiential activities and reflection circles, trainees will learn, apply, reflect, and grow together to build strong community capacity. This will activate and allow a solid group of like-minded individuals to share common language and understanding during times of activation for positive, productive alternatives to revenge for nonviolent direct action.

Understanding Minnesota's diverse racial and cultural communities' historical, cultural, intergenerational and structural trauma is a foundational element of healing individuals and impacting systems for positive change. Since systems of oppression are the primary reason that communities of color experience high levels of trauma, supporting community members' growth and learning about the insidious impacts of systems is imperative.

We will learn to be "critical yeast" to feed and inspire the "critical mass" for transformative restorative racial justice with truth-telling, conciliation, and reparations toward making Minnesota the peacebuilding power state for all.

Training Objectives:
a. Learn various types of psychological trauma and common responses to individual and collective trauma.
b. Learn the links between unhealed trauma and cycles of victimhood and violence.
c. Learn trauma healing and resilience models and associated strategies.
d.
Explore ways to apply trauma healing and resilience practices toward building peace within your sphere of influence.
e. Build supportive connections to maximize community healing with other community members who want a better place for all to live together.
