ACT: Active Collective Trauma Community Summit
Wednesday, June 29, 2022, 8:30 AM - 4:00 PM MST
Category: Committee Event

Location: The Hangar @ Stanley Marketplace
Topic and objective of each day of the summit:
Day One: Recognizing & Understanding Active Collective Trauma (ACT)
Objective – Recognize the root causes of trauma.
Throughout the first day of the ACT Summit, stakeholders, community-based organizations, and community residents will learn: 1) What trauma is – and what it is not, 2) Trauma’s effects on brain and body, and 3) How certain behaviors are used to manage overwhelming feelings connected to trauma. Participants will gain the knowledge needed to move from treating the side effects to healing the root causes, which can lead to collective healing.
Day Two: Creating Resiliency
Objective – Design intentional practices that lead to resiliency.
Developing resiliency to toxic environmental factors prevents trauma reactions for future generations and normalizes collective healing as a daily practice. Through healing sessions, both traditional and non-traditional, Day Two will give access to community-based organizations that are already providing the space for healing, thus breaking the mold on what is “normal” and creating the network to empower survivors to become thrivers!
Day Three: Moving Forward with Strength and Self-Determination
Objective – Set a course of action for community healing.
An in-depth knowledge of trauma, combined with practices designed to create resiliency, prepares us to collectively design an action plan that promotes community healing. Day Three will highlight Asset Based Community Development and normalize expectations that the community can move forward with strength and self-determination.

Continental breakfast for each day will be provided, beginning at 7:45AM. Please be prepared to explore the Stanley Marketplace restaurants for lunch!
