Trauma Healing

In a community that continues to suffer persistent trauma, the LPHCU continues to play a key role in trauma healing through identification of such cases, facilitating care and networking with other organizations that provide services such as workshops to all the clients identified as needing such services.

In a recent survey it was discovered that many of the students had experienced various forms of trauma mostly psychological.

One on one debriefing meetings with staff have proved to be quite therapeutic.

The LPHCU continues to provide a safe place and space for the students to share and express themselves.

Making a difference

Over the school breaks, small group sessions are held for secondary students based on the Trauma Healing Institute model.

The positive results of such sessions are quite evident and encouraging as more and more continue to offer and avail themselves for such sessions.
