Reducing Harm, Reclaiming Wholeness Training Series: Session 2

June 13 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm UTC+0

UDVC is thrilled to announce a partnership with Spencer Murray at No Harm for our upcoming 3-part training series. This series takes a holistic approach to ending gender-based violence, focusing on examining trauma, fostering wholeness, and exploring transformative intervention methods. The aim is to broaden our perspective on victim services, and we are excited to embark on this learning journey with you!
Session 2:
Pursuing Wholeness as an Act of Healing and Harm Reduction:
Violence, in all its forms, has a fragmenting effect on the lives of those who are harmed, as well as those who commit harm. The traumatic experiences of boys and men separate them from their wholeness and produces the dysfunction that precedes violence. Conversely, the trauma experienced by those that are harmed disrupts their sense of wholeness and can leave them in a state of brokenness that is difficult to recover from. To ensure safety for women and communities, our efforts to prevent violence must include an investment in the holistic wellness of boys and men. We must also surround survivors with communities of care that help them to restore their wholeness and repair what has been broken. This training will explore the individual and communal ways of restoring the full humanity of those harmed, as well as those that commit harm.
● Recognize how acts of harm disturb and dishonor the humanity in both the
harmed and those who do harm.
● Describe the conditions that contribute to the fragmentation of individuals,
communities, and the human family.
● Identify methods and practices that contribute to wellness, restoration, and
the reconciliation to self and community.
Intended audience: Advocates and DV treatment providers!
