REDDING COMMUNITY RESILIENCE WORKSHOP
Moving Through and Beyond Trauma
January 14, 2019 9:00 a.m. - 2:30 p.m.
The Health Alliance of Northern California (HANC) and Shasta Health Assessment and Redesign Collaborative (SHARC) are pleased to invite you to a community workshop on moving through and beyond trauma. In the wake of the Carr and Camp Fires, we are bringing the nationally recognized The Center for Mind Body Medicine to Redding for an interactive workshop open to all. Participants will learn and practice evidence-based tools for addressing personal stress and trauma. These skills are valuable for anyone, but will be particularly helpful for those working with fire survivors and/or those that have experienced a traumatic event. We have seen that many of our community caregivers are approaching burnout while trying to juggle their regular duties and additional fire-related tasks. This half-day workshop is a valuable opportunity to support our caregivers in their important roles. Leadership staff is also encouraged to attend to gain a better understanding of how the mind/body approach might be used to heal and empower staff and clients.

Please see the attached flier for further details. The registration fee is $25 and includes lunch. Online ticketing is available here: https://reddingcmbm.eventbrite.com
In an effort to allow participation from a diverse audience, we are limiting registration to 5 people per organization. You are encouraged to register early, as we anticipate the event will sell out. Please feel free to share this invitation with colleagues that may be interested in attending. While we particularly encourage those in helping professions to participate, there is truly no "wrong" person to attend. The skills and techniques are applicable to any human that has experienced stress.
Please forward any questions about this training to Amy Cavalleri.
