Upcoming Outreach Forum on November 14

An important part of ministry in jails (and in our communities) is the need to be “trauma-informed” – informed, aware, and sensitive to the trauma people we minister with may have experienced, and how sometimes religious language and communities can trigger traumatized people. Reverend Liz  Milner, Executive Director of CIC Ministries (www.cicministries.org) will share some of the training she teaches to volunteers in our jails, including what trauma is, how it can manifest, and the six principles that have been developed to help create safety. This is relevant to all people who live with, minster with, love, or who have been traumatized!
