Haelan House presents the 4th Annual Healing Trauma Conference
Lost and Found: Return to Self

Trauma is perhaps the most avoided, ignored, belittled, denied, misunderstood, and untreated cause of human suffering. ~ Peter Levine, PhD, author of Waking the Tiger: Healing Trauma

On May 21 & 22, 2022, The Healing Trauma Conference will offer education, tools, resources, and support for both those who are suffering from past traumas and caregivers and professionals who work with them. The conference will provide tools for healing and methods to forge a path to resiliency.

Healing trauma heals communities.

Homelessness, decreased life expectancy, substance abuse, suicidality, learning difficulties, neurological conditions, and poor physical, mental, emotional, and behavioral health are just some of the ways that trauma can manifest. The effects can be felt by the individual, their family, and the community at large. Healing trauma not only assists people with raising their quality of life but also creates a healthier community and trajectory for future generations.

Trauma can create a loss of self, of who a person really is.  Healing the trauma can return a person to themselves. Haelan House is excited to announce the fourth annual Healing Trauma Conference. This year’s theme is – Lost and Found: Return to Self

The conference will be held virtually. Registration is required to sign up for sessions that cover modalities from The Havening Technique, NIA, Hakomi, and psychedelic therapy. Presentations will also include methods and tools for calming the nervous system, restoring vitality, and building resilience.

Who is Haelan House?

Haelan House is an Oregon 501c3 nonprofit organization whose mission is “Healing the root cause and effects of trauma, creating health, resilience, and wholeness.”  To reach that goal we endeavor to raise awareness among as many people as possible who work in the medical, mental, and behavioral health fields, education, emergency services, law enforcement, social services, clergy, businesses, government, and others about trauma and the importance of being trauma-informed.

This awareness includes the importance of and methods for taking care of themselves. We believe this is an effective way to maximize the reach of trauma-informed services and treatment to restore vibrant health and resilience to people with trauma so that our citizens, schools, and community can operate in healthier ways.

We are equally dedicated to educating the public about how to recognize trauma, understand how it affects them, and what options are available to them for treatment and support.
