Strategies for Trauma Awareness and Resilience (STAR), Level 2

Elaine Zook Barge and Vernon Jantzi

Prepares participants to lead STAR activities, present workshops based on STAR materials, and adapt STAR concepts to their individual training needs and environments. In this training, participants have the opportunity to share their STAR experiences with each other and to review the theory, concepts and activities from STAR I through the use of Village STAR, a practical, hands-on manual that presents key STAR concepts clearly, with simple illustrations.

The training also includes additional content, exercises and skills for addressing trauma and building resilience. This will expand participant’s knowledge of STAR frameworks and processes and increase their ability to adapt and present STAR materials for their own context.
