Trauma Consciousness and Resilience (TCR) Workshops

By | February 4, 2017

Maji Peterx is offering a series of three Trauma Consciousness and Resilience workshops, open to AVP facilitators, lay counsellors, people working with traumatized people and anyone interested in Trauma literacy.  Like other AVP workshops, each one will last about two and a third days.   These workshops should enable participants to become more conscious of their own trauma and how to deal with it, build resilience and understanding of self-care, to become lay counsellors ‎and TCR facilitators.  The workshops need to be taken in the order given below, but it is possible to take only one or two workshops.

The Workshops:

First Level/Basic Workshop: The first level workshop introduces participants to Trauma, understanding trauma, types of trauma, ways we can be traumatized etc. and possible personal traumas that participants can have (known or unknown to themselves), with the aim of guiding them to safety and allowing them to be able to ‘remember without reliving’.
Date: March 25th – 26th 2017

Forgiveness and Reconciliation: This level was designed for communities that have witnessed mass atrocities and who are holding onto grudge and malice as this can keep us in the space that triggers our experience of hurt but it has been very helpful too as a step to the advanced trauma workshop (?) as it helps participants deal with personal pains, hurt and anger.
Date: April 1st – 2nd 2017
