For advocates working on the ground, we only hear the “trauma” and do not take the time to discuss the resiliency of the individuals, families, and communities we are working with. In this session, we will create space to bring that joy into the work that we do; the joy that we see with individuals, families, and communities when “things” go “right” for them; the joy we see with organizations when they create policies and practices for wellness for the staff; etc. Join us as we reclaim the “joy” in this work and re-center ourselves in healing and wellness.
