Healing Sessions

6 to 8 weeks

Over the course of two healing sessions, we will address past harm, engage in a healing process, and commit to actions that support healing moving forward. We will create space for recovery and restoration using the Healing-Centered Engagement model. This strength-based approach advances a collective view of healing and re-centers culture as a central feature in well-being. 

Healing sessions may focus on a specific issue or event that has taken place.

This engagement includes:

Pre-Session Interviews 

  • Interview up to 4 participants in 30-minute sessions to understand different goals and interests in the organization
  • Synthesize findings and incorporate them into session design
  • Share insights with immediate partners in pre-session meeting

Session One: Initiating Healing (2 Hours)

  • Reflect on our social identities in caucuses
