Strategies for Trauma Awareness and Resilience (STAR) Level 2 (640)

Katie Mansfield and Lisa Collins

STAR (Strategies for Trauma Awareness and Resilience) Level II training prepares participants to lead STAR-based activities and workshops and adapt STAR concepts to their individual training needs and environments. In this advanced training, participants are invited to reflect upon and share their experiences applying STAR in their lives and work. Participants also review the theory, concepts and activities from STAR I through the use of Village STAR, a practical, hands-on manual that presents key STAR concepts clearly, with simple illustrations.


The training includes additional content, exercises, and skills for addressing trauma and building resilience to deepen the experiences from STAR 1. Participants will create and present action plans about how they will adapt and apply STAR concepts and pedagogy within their work and life contexts. Upon completing STAR 2, participants are invited to join the STAR online learning community, a group of STAR Practitioners working in a variety of contexts, sharing their questions, learnings and experience with diverse populations.

Participants must have applied STAR concepts personally or professionally since completion of STAR Level I training (normally for a period of about 3-6 months).

This course is being offered for training and for academic credit. The syllabus details the number of credits hours and associated course requirements.
