Event description

Description

Journey of Hope Trainer & Facilitator Training is being offered in Lewis County on August 21-23, 2019.

ABOUT JOURNEY OF HOPE

Journey of Hope helps children and adults cope with traumatic events, develop their natural resiliency, and strengthen their social support networks. The program, which was developed by Save the Children in 2007 after Hurricane Katrina, has been used in school and community settings following many U.S. natural disasters and emergencies. Through a series of team activities such as play, literacy, discussion and art, children learn to identify and manage their emotions and develop healthy coping skills for stress and trauma in an encouraging, safe and supportive environment.
