Shawn Ginwright, PhD
We are excited to announce Shawn Ginwright, PhD as our keynote speaker for the upcoming virtual NWCF Forum: Healing-Centered Practices & Childhood Trauma: Reimagining Ourselves and Transforming Our Work with Children and Families. Dr. Ginwright returns to the Forum to share his practical wisdom, experience, and insight from his latest groundbreaking book: The Four Pivots: Reimagining Justice, Reimagining Ourselves. An expert in working with youth who have experienced inequity, adversity and trauma, Ginwright contends that healing – both on an individual and collective level – is the most important aspect of social change.
