Begin With Peace: Trauma Informed Care Gang Prevention and Intervention

On February 23rd, 2017 in Elk Grove, California I will be facilitating Begin With Peace: Trauma Informed Care Gang Prevention & Intervention. This training is not how to better identify young people as “gang members,” it’s about how to identify our young people as the sacred blessings, miracles, and gifts they are, meet them where they’re at, and facilitate healing that results in post-traumatic growth, the transformation of poisons (trauma) to healing medicines, and the reclamation of the healing vision, mission, and purpose our young people have and have been sent to this life to share with themselves, their families, our communities, and our world. 59 more words
