About this event

When many of us are feeling isolated and exhausted, the concept of radical rest and the inextricable link between self-healing and social justice is the most important aspect of social change.

Shawn Ginwright, Ph.D. returns to the NW Children's Forum to share his practical wisdom, experience and ideas from his latest groundbreaking book: "The Four Pivots: Reimagining Justice, Reimagining Ourselves". Dr. Ginwright is an expert in working with youth who have experienced inequity, adversity and trauma. Dr. Ginwright will be joined by Dr. Benjamin Danielson, a fierce community and child advocate. He’ll lead a panel from the community to share their stories and insight about healing-centered practices that inform their work.

Attendees will come away recharged and equipped with new tools and practical strategies to cultivate healing in their lives and transform their work with children and families.
