The goal of our Collective Recovery workshops and materials is to provide tools for organizations, institutions, and groups to incorporate collective recovery into their existing programming.
Collective Recovery is a way for communities to heal from trauma. Trauma is defined as an emotional shock following a stressful event.
We can treat trauma with individual therapy, but we know that more people are experiencing this type of deep stress than will get to see a counselor. We also know that when people are experiencing trauma their instinct can be to retreat from others and become isolated. One way people heal is by making connections to others, to nature, and to their communities. Collective Recovery provides methods for helping us heal together.
