This week I want to share a resource with you. I had the pleasure of learning about this agency a couple of months ago. The website is rich with information around trauma. Healing TREE. Note the letters in TREE are all capitalized, as they stand for Trauma Resources, Education, and Empowerment. The mission alone is worth noting:
Healing TREE (Trauma Resources, Education & Empowerment) advocates healing from abuse and trauma rather than coping with the symptoms, in order to transform lives and, ultimately, society. We achieve this by providing trauma-focused resources and education and by producing and partnering with relevant film, television, and theatre, empowering the social change necessary to create a healing movement.
They have a plethora of articles you can read, several book recommendations, as well as videos to watch. Their resources are spot on. I know and love many of the books. You could spend a great deal of time learning as you read the articles and watch videos, and it would be time well spent.
Please check out this website to learn more about trauma. And, if you need a therapist recommendation, they offer an approved care network, which they have taken the time to interview and learn their qualifications and treatment theories and modalities. I know this because I went through the process and am honored to be a part of their approved care network.
