Healing personal trauma to restore communities

Integrating trauma healing for partner staff into recovery programming. This assessment shares testimonies from CRS and partner staff who participated in a trauma healing program in Central Africa Republic. CRS's trauma-healing methodology uses small groups—of all genders, ages and faiths—focusing on the survivors of violence. Religious leaders, members of community protection committees, and local authorities also participate in these groups. Basic trauma‑healing workshops focus on individual sharing and healing while laying the foundation for communities to build capacity to respond to widespread suffering
