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. Healing from trauma and building peace between groups are deeply connected.  It is not possible to do one without the other. RPEC trainers and educators Santa Sorenson and Ram Bhagat will lead the workshop.
