Our nation is filled with many faith practices. Though diverse, they share a common belief that human beings can find peace and healing through faith. During this summit, faith leaders will convene to develop an understanding of trauma. Through a foundational teaching on trauma, leaders will gain knowledge about how exposure to trauma may impact congregations, communities and themselves. Leaders will be ignited through a “call to action” to determine how they can begin to carry the message, inform their congregations, collaborate with community agencies and join the mission of community wellness.
This learning collaborative will engage faith leaders to explore the impact of trauma on persons in the community. Attendees will:
- Identify two areas the impact of trauma on communities of faith.
- Identify two ways to integrate trauma informed practices into the participant’s community of faith.
- Develop a personal trauma informed practice commitment for service to the faith community.
- Participate in the formulation of an interfaith learning collaborative on trauma.
