Creating a Resilient World... One Church at a Time
Wednesday, October 30th, 2019 | Doors open at 9:30 a.m. | Event is 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. | Trinity Moravian Church
The impacts of trauma are far-reaching and affect every community throughout our world today. Studies indicate that up to 40% of American adults, many of whom are sitting in our pews, have experienced at least two adverse or traumatic experiences during their childhood. Sometimes, congregations also encounter collective traumas as a group or within their community.
Whether with individuals, families, or groups, pastors and ministry leaders regularly find themselves at the crossroads of tragedy and healing. How might the church minister to individuals experiencing distress and suffering in our churches and communities? One answer is to become trauma-informed.
Join us as the Center for Trauma Resilient Communities helps us explore the connection between toxic stress, adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), trauma, and community resilience. Participants will leave with a better understanding of:
* how trauma affects brain development and controls reactions;
* how adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and toxic stress impact our lives, our work, and our congregations; and
* how mandatory reporting laws work in North Carolina.
Representatives from the provincial mental health team will be present to offer local and national resources.
This event co-sponsored by the Moravian Church Southern Province and the Board of Cooperative Ministries.
