Baptist Peace Fellowship Training (with Lunch)
Strategies for Trauma Awareness and Resilience
Trainer: Ledayne Mcleese Polaski, Executive Director of the Baptist Peace Fellowship Of North America ~ Bautistas Por La Paz
We all come from broken homes.
In our own way we are each
mosaics are made
from broken pieces
and they are still works of art.
-- Amber Lynne
Trauma and loss are part of every human life. As church leaders, we have our own traumas, accompany parishioners through traumatic events, work with people in various stages of the trauma cycle, and lead organizations with their own stories of corporate trauma.
Unaddressed, these experiences can lead to an endless cycle of violently acting in against ourselves and acting out against others. When we address our personal and shared traumas and losses, we are better equipped to break the cycle, find healing for ourselves and strengthen our relationships.
In this workshop, we’ll explore:
The types of trauma.
The impact of trauma.
Acting in and acting out cycles.
Breaking free of the cycle.
Memorializing our losses.
Imagining a hopeful future.
