PreventIPV Spring 2020 Newsletter: Centering Healing & Nurturing Relationships

Wednesday, 17 June 2020

"A healing-centered approach to addressing trauma requires a different question that moves beyond 'what happened to you' to 'what’s right with you' and views those exposed to trauma as agents in the creation of their own well-being rather than victims of traumatic events." – Dr. Shawn Ginwright

Many of us are wondering how we can survive and thrive in the midst of so much chaos, fear and uncertainty. The truth is that we can, and will, together. 

Approaches that center healing understand trauma not simply as individual isolated experiences, but as collective experiences. They call for holistic responses to foster well-being. They draw from those things that bring our lives meaning: culture, faith, spirituality, and civic action. They are deepened by our collective strength. Healing-centered work is prevention.

The National Resource Center on Domestic Violence invites you to give yourself permission to join your beloved community as we silence the noise around us and return to our roots; digging deep within to identify and retrieve our innate source of hope, resilience and strength. In our 3-part webinar series, Loss, Self-care & Healing: Surviving and Thriving in the Midst of a Pandemic, A Community Response to Loss and Grief to COVID19, presenters will take participants on a journey that will offer new ways for engaging in self-compassion and holistic healing practices. See our Special Announcement for details.

The Spring 2020 Issue of the PreventIPV Newsletter features resources that center healing and nurturing relationships as critical prevention strategies.
