In the aftermath of Covid-19 and the ongoing fight against police brutality, acupuncturists will be called upon to address enormous amounts of trauma and the tools for trauma informed care will be more essential than ever. This course draws on AWB’s 15 years of responding to trauma around the world, to provide inspiration, practical case studies, and all the clinical and organizational tools you need to start this community rebuilding NOW.

This course will prepare you to provide community-style acupuncture to people impacted by natural disasters, environmental devastation, disease, social injustice and human conflict. The focus is on how to provide trauma prevention and recovery care to impacted communities in times of crisis.
