Basic Resources for Collective Trauma Healing

This course is meant to provide a basic understanding of the 7 fundamental pillars that we need to have in place if we are interested in engaging in Collective Trauma Healing, and then bringing them all together:

  1. Complexity
  2. Coherence
  3. Connection
  4. Compassion
  5. Consciousness 
  6. Courage
  7. Community
  8. Integration

In the course, we will explore each of these, and will share both information to understand, and practices to experience the resources directly. We will also get a sense of how they relate to Collective Trauma Healing.

Collective Trauma Healing work is very powerful, challenging and needs a very safe container. The aim of this course is having people walk away with

  1. a deeper understanding of what a safe container for Collective Trauma Healing looks like,
  2. the practices and resources to start (or continue) developing the capacities required to engage in this important field, and
  3. a basic understanding of what collective trauma is and how these foundations can support us in addressing it.

Dr. Laura Calderón de la Barca has been working on this topic since 2004, and over time she has seen many people attempt to start working with Collective Trauma and end up overwhelmed because the foundations are not in place. She designed this course to address the need for starting with resourcing and with an understanding of how collective trauma works, before attempting to work with it.
