The Richmond Peace Education Center will offer a Healing And Rebuilding Our Communities (HROC) 3-day Basic workshop for adults Friday Nov. 11 to Sunday, Nov. 13.

The HROC three-day basic training presents a group-based experiential model of healing that focuses on recognizing and understanding extreme trauma and its effects on the individual, family and community. Based equally on trauma theory and in-the-field application, the HROC training engages participants in a process that is both instructive and personally enlightening.

Participants gain tools to help themselves and others through the process of grieving, loss, and the transformation of hurt into healing.
