Earlier this month, guests from all over the word attended CCC&Y’s presentation of Kevin Campbell’s “Self-Healing Communities — A Continued Conversation.”

The presentation is now available on CCC&Y’s Prevention webpage at Self-Healing Communities with Kevin Campbell. The free program also includes presentation slides and Self-Healing Communities Data from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.

“As a testament to Kevin’s international work we had participants from England, Canada, the Netherlands, Belgium, Texas, Virginia, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Arkansas, and of course, all over Arizona,” said Virginia Watahomigie, executive director of CCC&Y. “This piece is an argument for moving away from treating individuals, community members and families as the “recipient” of services, from medicalizing unlivable lives, from not acknowledging systems of injustice and a move toward the scientifically-based call to action of participation, truth and community healing.”

The presentation received rave reviews from participants:

“This presentation is outstanding- thank you!” “Thank you for the space and conversation….this was excellent!” “I love Kevin Campbell’s approach and how it’s backed by stacks of research. I enjoyed the way it was presented.” “As someone that works for an Indigenous agency, I appreciated the perspective on moving towards a more Indigenous way of thinking for social services.” “I’m still mad at COVID, but having the chance to attend this training from across the country was incredible. I value any chance to listen to Kevin speak and share, and I’m so grateful to CCC&Y for doing this!” “I love how passionate Kevin is and how much knowledge he brings to his teachings”
