STAR: Strategies for Trauma Awareness & Resilience 


During the COVID-19 pandemic, trauma and resilience education is as vital as ever. People and communities are experiencing trauma and demonstrating resilience as we practice physical distancing, mourn losses, and manage new demands. The journey towards transforming that trauma and finding new wells of resilience will continue long after this crisis has ended.

At this time, STAR has developed a few visuals and short videos with past STAR participants to acknowledge diverse responses to trauma and strategies for building resilience. Please check out our resource page for STAR models and tools for understanding trauma and building resilience. 

We are developing STAR 1 and STAR 2 training online. Registration for fall online trainings will begin in mid-July. Sign up below to be notified when we have more details and registration opens.

Become a trauma-informed leader

Violence leads to trauma; unhealed trauma leads to recurring violence against self and others. But it doesn't have to be that way. Individuals and communities can learn skills for addressing trauma, healing relationships, and building resilience which improves the well-being of all. Check out our educational training options!
