As human beings live together in society, we experience trauma that’s often caused by racism, gender discrimination, homophobia, xenophobia, sexual violence, political violence and more. Harmful attacks can lead to emotional, spiritual and physical suffering.
Advancements in medical science reveal that emotional pain caused by adverse childhood experiences can actually shorten lifespans and result in disease, addiction, mental illness and suffering. Trauma-informed care can aid in the recovery from these injuries and provide a path to holistic healing.
This first-of-its-kind conference aimed specifically at houses of prayer (i.e., churches, mosques, synagogues and temples) to offer trauma-informed care within their communities, attendees will be equipped to aid in the healing of the world.
