About the 2023 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 ideas 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. He is joined by Dr. Benjamin Danielson, fierce community and child advocate, and panelists and community leaders Kaaren Andrews, Saroeum Phoung, and Carmen Rojas, PhD. Each shares their stories and insights about healing-centered practices that inform their work. Learn more and watch on-demand here.
