STAR: Strategies for Trauma Awareness & Resilience 

While the global community continues to face turmoil and uncertainty,  trauma and resilience education is as vital as ever. We are pleased to announce STAR 1 and STAR 2 are now online! Registration is available below to join upcoming online training.

Online trainings will include scheduled group Zoom sessions as well as activities to be completed on your own schedule. Participants will be invited to connect and reflect together on trauma and strategies for resilience in individuals, organizations, and communities. See the dates and times below for more information.

If you or your organization is interested in a custom-designed online training for employees or volunteers, please submit a request here. We are happy to collaborate! Unsure of what type of training you might need? We’re ready to listen and help assess your needs based on what we have to offer with no obligation.

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!
