For Community Partners

From teachers and mentors to advocates and friends, community partners play a significant role in helping trauma survivors heal.  Therapy is one of the pathways to trauma healing, but many trauma survivors do not have access to treatment or are hesitant to participate. This makes the role of community partners essential.

Community partners can provide trauma survivors with support in the following of ways: 

  • Create safe, stable environments
  • Provide positive, reparative experiences
  • Use empathetic listening
  • Facilitate connections with outside supports
  • Offer creative options for self expression

Storiez resources and training also provide community partners with education and tools to support trauma survivors in processing their emotions and telling their stories in safe ways.
