Creating Community After the Crisis – Engaging Survivors in Hope and Healing
Casey Gwinn and Michael Burke, with members of the VOICES Survivor Network
Friday, October 13, 2017 at 10:00 am PST
n honor of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, the Alliance presents a webinar that highlights stories of survivors of domestic violence who are part of the VOICES Survivor Network. The VOICES Survivor Network is a national committee of survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault who volunteer their time to celebrate their strength and survival. This group of individuals use their collective voice to help others through advocacy, education, and empowerment. As partners in hope and healing, members of this committee offer a unique perspective in regards to establishing programs, strengthening organizations, helping to identify gaps in services and sharing best practices. Alliance for HOPE International leads this national network of survivors.
In this webinar, members of the National VOICES Network and their center’s director will share the power of engaging survivors in the process of the collective impact movement. Survivors will share the growth and empowerment they experience as they carry out projects that aid and support others who are going through what they went through. Participants will come away with an understanding of the importance of creating community after the crisis for survivors and their children.
Tools and resources for starting a VOICES committee will be made available as well.
Increasing Wellbeing through Trauma Informed Practices
Anna Melbin, The Full Frame Initiative
Tuesday, November 16, 2017 at 10:00 am PST.
The Full Frame Initiative (FFI) believes that every person in this country has a right to wellbeing. And all of us – from janitor to judge, senior executive to senior citizen, adult to adolescent – share a set of universal needs that are critical to our wellbeing. These essential human needs are what FFI defines as The Five Domains of Wellbeing – social connectedness, stability, safety, mastery and meaningful access to relevant resources. While we share a common need for assets in all of these domains, each of us experiences access to wellbeing and the domains in different and deeply personal ways, influenced by many factors, including experiences of and responses to trauma. And survivors of trauma are more than just that experience and success often means more than just addressing safety concerns and healing from trauma. How would our advocacy be different if we used trauma informed practices as one important strategy toward the larger goal of supporting whole people to increase their wellbeing?
This webinar will provide an overview of the evidence-informed Five Domains of Wellbeing framework and explore the intersection between wellbeing, trauma and trauma informed practices.
