About the Training
This is a training for trauma healing practitioners, psychotherapists, psychologists, social workers, doctors, nurses, spiritual counselors, and community activists to learn the core principles of the Safe Embrace Trauma Healing (SETH) curriculum - a global model for trauma recovery for survivors of gender based violence, poverty, conflict, exploitation, and abuse.
The SETH curriculum is an effective, group-based model for healing trauma at the grassroots level, developed over years of working with communities lacking access to mental health support. It can be utilized in a train-the-trainer workshop with teachers or caregivers or directly with trauma survivors.
The training will also introduce our model for Compassionate Activism - the powerful marriage of healing and activism that lays the foundation for how we deliver SETH trainings and workshops around the world.
We see the need for trained professionals to become healing activists in their communities, and for activists to have stronger skills in trauma recovery. This training creates the space for us to unite our skills and heed the call for global healing.
You will be guided in an experience of the SETH techniques and practices as well as learn the principles of our Compassionate Activism approach to healing in global communities.
