[VIRTUAL] Healing Colorado's Collective Trauma: Honoring Shared Loss and Promoting Resilience

Date: December 1 - 2, 2021
Time: 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Healing Colorado’s Collective Trauma is critical to the prevention of violence and creating a society that supports human flourishing.

In the last 20 years, Colorado has been disproportionately impacted by violence and ranks fourth in the U.S. in the number of mass shootings. In addition, Black and Latino communities in Denver have experienced dramatic increases in violent crime in recent years. As a result, Coloradoans have a shared legacy of collective trauma, which reduces our capacity to see and heal psychological wounds. This trauma diminishes well-being, elevates fear, and perpetuates violence in individuals and communities.

This workshop will introduce the concepts of individual, ancestral, and collective trauma, as well as resilience. As we understand the nature and effects of trauma, we can more effectively work together to prevent the atrocities and systemic disruptions that lead to this phenomenon in the first place.
