Resilience, Self-Care, and Collective Trauma

The COVID-19 pandemic, George Floyd murder, Washington, D.C. insurrection, recent mass shootings, and now the Derek Chauvin trial stirs trauma in our communities and in ourselves. Such communal post-traumatic stress is called collective trauma, and it resides in our bodies. To heal, we need to connect with ourselves and others. This connection-building, body-centered webinar provides:
- A brief overview of trauma and collective trauma
- A guided, grounding meditation
- Simple, mindful movement
- Small and large group conversation
- An introduction to three key resilience and self-care practices

Attendees will Learn

-Define trauma and collective trauma
-Understand the basics of resilience and self-care for collective trauma
-Provide an opportunity to connect with colleagues around collective trauma
-Identify at least one new strategy for enhancing resilience
