On this episode I speak with William Ackerman, Natalia Aquirre, and Casey Gwinn, from the Alliance for Hope International. We discuss the valuable resources available for survivors and their families through the Family Justice Center Alliance and Camp Hope America. We chat about how Casey was able to establish the first revolutionary Family Justice Center in San Diego and grow to over 130 centers worldwide. Casey and Natalia describe how resources are trauma informed and how a “challenge by choice” model has helped children work through trauma they’ve experienced.
Casey gives us a preview of his book Hope Rising: How the Science of Hope Can Change Your Life and discusses how important hope is to survivors of domestic violence.
