Shifting from Trauma-Informed Care to Healing-Centered Engagement featuring Dr. Shawn Ginwright
Iowa ACEs 360 is excited to host a virtual event with Dr. Shawn Ginwright to explore the principles of Healing-Centered Engagement.
Healing-centered engagement builds on the work of trauma-informed care and moves beyond asking, “What has happened to you?” to “What is right with you?”
The term, coined by Dr. Ginwright in 2018, describes an asset-based and culturally rooted approach to healing and well-being for young people of color and their adult allies. Dr. Ginwright bases his approach on more than 30 years of research and practice with young people, schools, probation departments, and social workers.
Participants will learn about the principles of healing-centered engagement and hear examples of how to integrate these principles and practices into their work with young people. Dr. Ginwright will present for 45 minutes and then provide an opportunity for Q&A with attendees.
Thank you to Polk County Decategorization for sponsoring this event!
