The course spans both days, Saturday & Sunday, from 9am til about 6pm. We may end earlier than 6pm but we say that just to be safe. You'll receive 15 live CEUs. It's being held inside NESA (acupuncture school) at 19 Norwich St, Worcester, MA 01608. It's being taught by co-creators Carla Cassler and Ravyn Stanfield, both longtime acupuncturists who have revamped and re-conceived this program for this occasion.

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.

TOPICS INCLUDE: - The physiological, social and psychological factors in trauma patterns; - Sociological sources of trauma; - Clinical tools for trauma prevention; how to set up disaster response projects in the community; - How to work safely on mobile teams and in community settings; - Cultural humility considerations when providing trauma-informed care; - Self help and safety for practitioners working in the field in crisis situations.
