By the Coconino Coalition for Children & Youth

More than 300 people filled the High Country Conference Center to hear Kevin Campbell’s presentation on “Self-Healing Communities” on Oct. 29 in Flagstaff. The event was also streamed live to audience members at Encompass Behavioral Health Services in Page.

This day was about acknowledgment and cultural shift in healing, said Virginia Watahomigie, executive director of the Coconino Coalition for Children & Youth.

The program began with historical recognition of how we got to where we are, examples, colonization, history of casework as usual etc.  Campbell then discussed what can be done now- Self-Healing Communities which is truly important for every org, system and person seeking change.  

Campbell is an internationally known youth permanency expert…he played a major role in the passing of the Fostering Connections to Success legislation, and Kevin’s work has been featured in dozens of national publications including being twice featured on CBS’ 60 MINUTES with Lesley Stahl, as well as in the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, and Time Magazine. He is also featured in the award-winning documentary From Place to Place. For his complete bio, click here
