Community Healers Project Message + May 11 workshop

Children and teens need emotionally mature adults to help them regulate their emotions and make sense of their experience.  Many times youth and community workers are filling the connection gap where in past eras family and extended family would have fulfilled this need.  They provide space, structure, consistency and some attunement for young people that support them to develop and grow themselves.
