RooT’s Healing Conference and Clinic is a four - day event grounded in the truth that healing from trauma is within survivors’ grasps. It decenters the “expert” in healing, places the survivor at the center, making healing equitable. Workshops and on-site healing equip survivors with practical skills that can be used to address our own and others’ healing and become introduced to the benefits of holistic strategies. The trainings focus on developing skills needed to address harm in our personal and public lives. Unlike most conferences, sessions are interactive and geared toward assuring that survivors walk away with knowledge that is immediately usable, for both personal and communal growth. The conference also allows the opportunity for participants to obtain nonconventional healing tools from local vendors at more affordable prices. To make it sustainable and accessible, childcare and food are provided using local vendors who share similar visions as RooT.
