Optional Continuing Education (CE) for Introduction to Strategies for Trauma Awareness and Resilience (Intro to STAR) 2 hour online training

Tuesday, April 14, 2020, 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p. m. CST

When terrible things happen, like COVID-19, our peace has been stolen from us. Introduction to Strategies for Trauma Awareness and Resilience (STAR) teaches how to build peace back into our lives and communities.

Training Facilitator:
Donna Minter, PhD, LP
Certified STAR Trainer, USA and International Experience
Neuropsychologist, Clinical Psychologist, and Forensic Psychology Examiner
Founder and Executive Director, Minnesota Peacebuilding Leadership Institute

This 2 hour online training teaches the basic concepts, models, and strategies of the 5-day Strategies for Trauma Awareness and Resilience - STAR Training. STAR is a research and practice-supported peacebuilding training integrating neuropsychology, trauma healing and resilience, restorative justice, nonviolent conflict transformation, and broadly defined spirituality. The training introduces people to being trauma-informed, resilience-oriented, and restorative justice-focused for the benefit of themselves and others. It is for individuals who wish to learn basic STAR concepts and models within a shorter-time frame than the single day STAR-Lite Training and the 5-day STAR Training. Introduction to STAR is not a pre-requisite or replacement for the STAR or STAR-Lite Trainings. It is designed for those wanting to understand and heal trauma toward building peace within their spheres of influence.

The Introduction to STAR online training objectives:
a. Learn the full intersectional spectrum of individual and collective psychological trauma.
b. Learn the links between unhealed trauma and cycles of victimhood and violence.
c. Learn STAR's trauma healing and resilience models and associated practices.
d. Explore self-care for resilience strategies to build peace into your life, family, and community.

For licensed Minnesota social workers, teachers, and nurses who also wish to earn 2 hrs of continuing education (CE) for Introduction to STAR, the CE fee is an additional $15, which must be paid via this page. If you're a social worker, nurse, or teacher licensed in another state, please contact your state's professional board to determine if they have a reciprocal CE relationship with Minnesota.

Please note that it is still necessary to register on the original webpage if you intend to purchase CEs.
