In the global philanthropic ecosystem, it’s common for trauma to be left out of the equation. Acute and worthy needs like food, shelter, education, and employment are addressed, but the underlying trauma is left to fester, ultimately undermining the efficacy of many worthy endeavors.

 Join CFTE Co-Director Dave Emerson, international relations executive Rebecca Sims, World Reader Chief Advancement Officer Wendi Yen Huestis, and Elizabeth Ringler-Jayanthan, LCSW, TCTSY-F for this important conversation. All registrants will receive a recording if unable to attend live.

250 million people around the world will experience complex trauma & PTSD this year.


Center for Trauma & Embodiment is a global health initiative dedicated to helping survivors of trauma. Each year, our services and programs reach over 30,000 people in more than 40 countries, territories, and First Nations.

Help us reach 50,000 people in 2024!
Even a small donation has a global impact.

"Complex trauma, the binary, violence, rejection and discrimination, erasure...these are all forces that land in my body as a trans survivor. For myself and in my work with other trans and nonbinary survivors, I need tools that can help tend the wounds of both relational and social injustice trauma. As a model, TCTSY is providing so much of what I need to support whole people in trauma healing.‚ÄĚ
