The 4th Annual Liberation-Based Healing Conference
October 16 & 17, 2009
This conference brings together therapists, community organizers, educators, faith communities, and activists to learn and develop clinically and theoretically sound interventions and strategies that promote family and community healing. Understanding contemporary socio-political contexts and engaging community partners is emphasized throughout the innovative workshops. Nationally acclaimed presenters partner with community activists to deliver liberation-based strategies and facilitate dialogue to bolster resilience and promote social justice and equity.
Day one offers professionals the opportunity to engage in dialogue facilitated by national leaders in liberation-based healing. In the morning we will focus on current models of liberation-based practice. In the afternoon, participants will discuss strategies for implementing transformation practices in their daily work.
On day two, local community members and leaders will join conversations that engage all of us in applying liberation-based healing practices to local grass roots community change.
