Nepal Forum for Restorative Justice organized a half-day workshop on “Trauma-infomed Peacebuilding and Mental Wellbeing in the Times of Crisis” on 1 November, 2023.
The workshop focused on the conceptual and practical aspects related to Trauma-informed Peacebuilding, which center on ways to recognize trauma, understand its impacts on individuals and communities and practice self-care as peacebuilders do their work. Participants got opportunities to explore and understand how trauma affects us on an individual and group levels and why an awareness of that is critical to peacebuilding work. There was also discussion on ways to integrate trauma-informed practices in the project designs and their implementation.
The workshop was led by S. Martin, Global Partnerships Manager of Mediators Beyond Borders International (MBBI), and there was a participation of 22 individuals representing various organizations.
