2001 Healing Place Summit

The 2011 THP Summit, hosted by The Healing Place of Richmond, VA, was informative, enlightening, and encouraging.  New approaches to strengthening and maximizing the Recovery Dynamics curriculum were discussed. 
The two-day Summit lasted covered a variety of topics during breakout sessions such as THP Core Elements, THP Universal Language, Fund Development, and Phase II (Transitional Living). THP Louisville President and CEO Jay Davidson led a discussion on “Lessons Learned / Starting a Healing Place”.  Latoya Whitlock shared her approach to engaging the family in the recovery process and working with women in recovery who have children. 
There are some very interesting projects in the works from the Community Planning Development department of Norfolk, VA, to the Somolian Community in Columbus, OH, and the Native American Pueblos in Santé Fe, NM.  The Healing Place is “A Model that Works”. 

One unique opportunity is a film project being produced by two retired social workers, Gail L. Kenyon and David Harrison from Raleigh, NC.  They are working with Tribal Judge Edie Quintana in Santé Fe, NM, documenting those Native Americans from that area who have found recovery at Healing Places in Richmond, Raleigh, and Louisville.  Their aim is to use that film documentary as a tool to assist Judge Quintana and other agencies in Santé Fe, NM, to begin the process of establishing a Healing Place in that part of the country.  That is truly exciting and encouraging to know that the word is out. 
Thanks for a job well done to Karen Stanley, Executive Director of The Healing Place of Richmond, VA, and her staff for hosting this year’s Summit.  The 2011 Summit will be hosted in Louisville, KY, so stay tuned for details.
