Training Overview Description

We’re thrilled to welcome back Dr. Shawn Ginwright, as our keynote speaker, and Seattle's own Dr. Ben Danielson as our panel moderator. Together, they will guide us through thought-provoking discussions, challenge our thinking, and share their expert perspectives.

Historical and intergenerational trauma is real and far-reaching. The cumulative emotional wounding from generation to generation can contribute to many negative health outcomes for individuals including PTSD, depression, and Type 2 diabetes – as well as impacting the community as a whole.

This year's Forum will focus on the “how” of our work. How can we best understand and begin to address community trauma? What practical tools are available for those of us who work with children, youth and families to start the healing process?

  • Delve into topics of racism, inequality, and poverty and explore more collective approaches to healing.
  • Hear from a panel of community leaders who focus on healing in their approach to working with individuals, communities and systems.
  • Walk away with concrete strategies that support children and youth (and the adults working with them) in a holistic, strength-based way.
