Moving from Trauma Informed to Trauma Resourced
One of the biggest areas of need identified by Richmond's church leaders is for their staff and members to be equipped to care for those in our community who have experienced trauma.
In response, For Richmond, in partnership with Virginia's Kids Belong, Clover Hill Church and others, will be hosting a trauma training on Saturday, October 26th from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. to help Richmond's churches become trauma informed and trauma resourced. The training will take place at U-Turn Sports.
A general session based in the Trust-Based Relational Intervention method (TBRI) will be followed by specialized tracks for:
Current and potential foster, kinship and adoptive parents who have not had an introduction to TBRI as well as those wishing to support these families
Pastors, children's and youth ministry leaders, and church staff and volunteers
Teachers, staff, and volunteers working in schools
Your registration of $25 includes lunch.
Special Opportunities During the Lunch Hour
We are offering 15 minute personal consultations on a first come, first serve basis during lunch with trauma trained professionals. When you register, you will be able to request your session.
Senior Pastor Gathering
Senior level pastors are invited to have lunch with their peers to discuss the morning's content and interact with pastors whose churches have already implemented trauma-informed practices. When you register, please indicate your interest in participating.
