Global Trauma Project (GTP), based in Kenya, supports local changemakers around the world to strengthen trauma-informed programming that is accessible, culturally-relevant, and proven to show significant impact. Presenters will share their experiences utilizing Trauma-Informed Community Empowerment (TICE) – GTP’s evidence-based framework that allows for fidelity to effective mental health supports and flexibility to local contexts. As an adaptable, contextualized foundation, TICE strengthens the capacity of community providers, who are often doubly at risk because they are themselves experiencing high stress, and serving communities impacted by compounded stress, complex trauma, and historical injustice.
Confronting systems of oppression within global mental health is core to GTP’s process. Speakers will discuss how deconstructing power and privilege, including the construct of whiteness, can unburden not only those bearing the brunt of oppression, but also those holding power, whether consciously or unconsciously.
Finally, this session will introduce participants to the core concepts of the TICE Framework, and how it has been applied to key GTP programmatic offerings of Preventing Violent Extremism, reducing Sexual/ Gender Based Violence, and promoting youth development. Case examples from Kenya, South Sudan, Ethiopia, and the United States will highlight the relevance of TICE within program assessment, staff support, curriculum design, training, mentoring, and supervision.
