Collective Healing and Systems Change

Resiliency Within

Apr 4 2022 • 1 hr


What do we learn when we integrate the perspectives of trauma and systems change? Why is a trauma-informed lens absent from the mainstream discourse about social and environmental problem solving and what changes when we bring that lens from the periphery to the mainstream? This episode of Resiliency Within dives into an exploration of how trauma shows up as a force to be reckoned with in systems that touch our lives - our education systems, healthcare systems, housing systems, etc. - drawing on insights gathered by the Collective Change Lab in conversation with dozens of social change leaders in Sri Lanka, Romania, Australia, Tasmania, Canada, Colombia, India, the US, and elsewhere. In this episode, guest speakers Laura Calderon de la Barca, John Kania, and Katherine Milligan also offer collective healing practices adopted by social change leaders in pursuit of systems change.
