Mission

Healing TREE (Trauma Resources, Education & Entertainment) advocates healing from abuse and trauma rather than coping with the symptoms, in order to transform lives and, ultimately, society. We achieve this by providing trauma-focused resources and education and by producing and partnering with relevant film, television, and theatre, empowering the social change necessary to create a healing movement.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Approved Care Network

We have created, and continue to grow, the first national directory of vetted, trauma-focused providers, trained in brain-body based maladies, by state. Our ACN helps spread healing from trauma rather than coping with the symptoms. As of August 2020, we have forty-five therapists, supplemental care providers and treatment facilities listed.

Population(s) Served
Victims and oppressed people
Adults

We bring internationally recognized trauma experts to local mental health practitioners to train them in EMDR, a leading, evidence-based, trauma-focused treatment modality. This 52 hour intensive training has life-changing results. As of August 2020, we have already facilitated training of clinicians who work with approximately 3,100 children in the Kentucky foster care system, 95% of whom are below the poverty level. Some of these children have no longer needed medication, no longer self-harmed and even improved their symptoms so much that they no longer require their previous level of care.

Population(s) Served
At-risk youth
Economically disadvantaged people

We produced a Short Film called Silk which follows a gifted aerialist who struggles to recognize she’s being gaslit by her new boyfriend. With a nod to the classic film Gaslight, our short film sparks college campus conversations about the most insidious forms of abuse and trauma and what to do about them through College Workshops built around our film. Silk features stunning aerial work by renowned performer Crista Marie Jackson (The Greatest Showman) and also stars Fran Kranz (The Cabin In The Woods), Louisa Krause (Billions) and Garcia (Tales of the City). Silk is directed by John Magaro (The Many Saints of Newark, The Umbrella Academy, Carol, The Big Short) and written by award-winning playwright David Caudle and Healing TREE founder Marissa Ghavami.
