Healing Centered Engagement Certification

Think you may be interested in becoming a Certified Healing Centered Practitioner? Consider taking our new Healing Centered Practitioner certification for teachers, school administrators and youth development practitioners. What’s really cool about our new certification program is that it allows you the flexibility to learn via our online lessons, webinars and virtual training with one of our trainers.

What is healing centered engagement?

Healing Centered Engagement was coined by Dr. Shawn Ginwright in 2018 to advance a new and effective way to support young people of color and their adult allies with an asset based, and cultural rooted approach to healing and well-being. Healing Centered Engagement is based on over 20 years of research and practice with young people, and schools, probation departments and social workers. Dr. Ginwright is one of the nation’s leading innovators, provocateurs, and thought leaders for youth and is Professor of Education and Africana Studies at San Francisco State University.

Flourish Agenda offers professionals with the opportunity to obtain certification as a Certified Healing Centered Practitioner. We have trained hundreds of teachers, administrators and youth development professionals in the principles of Healing centered engagement, and how to integrate these principles and practices into work with young people…

For more than 30 years, we have put our whole hearts into this. This is love work!
