The Future of Healing: Shifting From Trauma Informed Care to Healing Centered Engagement

The Promise of Healing Centered Engagement

· Healing centered engagement is explicitly political, rather than clinical.

· Healing centered engagement is culturally grounded and views healing as the restoration of identity.

· Healing centered engagement is asset driven and focuses well-being we want, rather than symptoms we want to suppress.

· Healing centered engagement supports adult providers with their own healing.

A Note for Practice and Policy

· Start by building empathy

· Encourage young people to dream and imagine!

· Build critical reflection and take loving action.
