Virtual Event: Responding to Trauma and Promoting Healing by Building Compassionate Systems and Communities – May 13

Posted by York College on May 10, 2022

On May 13, 2022, 8:30 AM, the Institute for Social Healing, in partnership with Millersville University Department of Social Work, Lincoln University, and the Mid-Atlantic Council on Family Relations, will host our second annual symposium, in which we will bring together researchers, educators, policy makers, practitioners, community leaders and students for the presentation of research, sharing of ideas and holding space for open dialogue on topics related to the broad concept of social healing.

The symposium is cost free, virtual and open to all who wish to attend. This year’s symposium will emphasize the role of compassionate communities and systems in effectively and ethically responding to trauma and promoting healing. Compassionate communities and systems are ones in which the people in them recognize the interconnectedness and complexities of the drivers of harm and paths towards well-being and actively work to ease suffering. They are ones that build effective structures and policies, communicate, collaborate, and coordinate efforts across organizations and sectors and center the voices of those most impacted by community issues.
