Description: Trauma is a near universal experience of children and adults in our communities. A person’s experience of trauma impacts every area of human functioning — physical, mental, behavioral, social, and spiritual. It is now the expectation that human-serving organizations and their staff view the people they serve through the trauma lens and competently intervene in this area. The good news is that trauma is treatable and organizations can become trauma-informed and wellness and resilience-focused in order to best meet the needs of the people they serve.
Methodist Healthcare Ministries is hosting a two-day workshop Whole Health Action Management (WHAM). The training is a peer-led program for people with chronic physical and behavioral health conditions that promotes self-management to create and sustain new health behavior. Anyone can benefit from engaging in the WHAM process to improve health; the program is specifically designed to counter the high incidence of chronic physical health conditions - such as diabetes, heart disease, and obesity - among people living with behavioral health conditions.
