NEW TRAINING! Understanding Trauma and How it Affects Children

Understanding Trauma: 
This live or recorded Zoom training is an excellent resource for churches wanting to dive deeper into understanding and preventing trauma, as well as actively supporting survivors in faith communities. It includes information on the various types of trauma, brain development, trauma triggers, and more. The Institutional Courage principles developed by Jennifer Freyd are also reviewed. There is an analysis and critique of the core values of Anabaptist faith communities with special attention on how to balance peace, reconciliation, and justice when it comes to protecting the vulnerable.
