Healing the Wounds of History [HWH] recongises the importance of psycho-social approaches to healing through self-awareness, understanding, forgiveness and transformation and integrates these well-researched methodologies in training of professionals, teacher education as well as conferences and other events.
The HWH’s main objective is to create a community of change agents, field workers, teachers and other practitioners, who, after appropriate training, are empowered to apply the HWH approaches into their respective practices within communities in Lebanon. HWH features THREE core activities: HWH Training, Teacher Education and the Garden of Forgiveness.
