Healing through Connection: Cultural Practices for Families and Communities Moving Beyond Trauma

Event Date
Thursday, September 17, 2020, 04:00PM

Healing doesn’t always need to involve complex tools; providing survivors with safe spaces to connect over simple activities like sampling traditional crafts and food, spiritual practices, and sharing cultural meaning goes a long way towards empowering survivors from historically marginalized communities. In this session, presenters from Honolulu’s Domestic Violence Action Center (DVAC) will share practices that help survivors feel heard, connected, and in control of their healing. They will discuss what culturally-specific services look like in the multi-cultural communities DVAC engages, and how a trauma-informed lens is interwoven with the cultural values reflected in these communities.
