About the Event

 

This Iowa ACEs 360 event with Dr. Shawn Ginwright will explore the principles of Healing-Centered Engagement. Healing-centered engagement builds on the work of trauma-informed care and moves beyond asking, “What has happened to you?” to “What is right with you?” The term, coined by Dr. Ginwright in 2018, describes an asset-based and culturally rooted approach to healing and well-being for young people of color and their adult allies. Dr. Ginwright bases his approach on more than 30 years of research and practice with young people, schools, probation departments, and social workers.

 

Participants will learn about the principles of healing-centered engagement and hear examples of how to integrate these principles and practices into their work with young people. Dr. Ginwright will present for 45 minutes and then provide an opportunity for Q&A with attendees.
