Become certified as a Healing Centered Engagement Practitioner.
Flourish Agenda has developed an online certification course for youth development workers, teachers, and school administrators that can be taken anywhere, at any time. The course is self-paced, and includes videos, animated scenarios, interactive and reflective learning activities, as well as supplemental learning resources.
What is Healing Centered Engagement?
Healing Centered Engagement is an asset-based and culturally-rooted approach to healing and well-being for young people of color and their adult allies. The term was coined by Dr. Shawn Ginwright in 2018, and is based on more than 30 years of research and practice with young people, schools, probation departments, and social workers.
Over the years, Flourish Agenda has trained hundreds of teachers, administrators, and youth development professionals on the principles of Healing Centered Engagement, and how to integrate these principles and practices into their work with young people.
Now this training is available online for more people to benefit from this impactful information.
