More about this training
This training is for international development and humanitarian aid workers who are seeking compassionate, anti-oppressive, trauma-informed, healing-centered practices for working with colleagues, leading teams, and building partnerships. The training uses the CourageRISE framework to guide participants toward relational cultures of care that sustain individual wellbeing in the service of their broader work for transformative, systemic change. The tools and skills learned in this course will help participants break away from workplace cultures that are stuck in ‘survival mode’ and often end up unintentionally reinforcing colonial and oppressive practices like toxic power imbalances, a sense of not belonging, employee burnout, hopelessness, and despair. The course will use a mix of inquiry, reflection, somatic practices, and discussions.
Participants will leave with clear ways of supporting collective care, wellbeing, and creativity in their programs and organizations so that they can truly work in solidarity with each other and the communities they serve. All participants will receive a copy of a participants manual or shared resource drive with key terms, concepts and templates.
