It is FMCA's mission to equip our students with the tools they need to help create positive change in the lives of their clients and communities. After the devastating earthquakes in Turkey, many people continue to process this trauma. This impacted entire communities in need of assistance in many ways. Acting as givers is one of our core values, and we are determined to help in the best way we can.
We reached out to Jim Gordon and the Center for Mind-Body Medicine (CMBM) to help make a difference. CMBM has chosen to offer specialized training on how to help survivors of the earthquake deal with their related trauma. They have past experience working with survivors of hurricanes, such as those that hit Puerto Rico, as well as people living in war and war-like zones in places such as Gaza and Ukraine. This has led to CMBM creating a course about using mind-body medicine to help with trauma.
The course is designed to teach community leaders in Turkey how to use mind-body skills and self-care techniques to help them work through their trauma. The course will then teach these leaders how to help others in their communities to use these same techniques. This will help more and more people across Turkey begin healing as more and more people share these techniques with each other.
FMCA will be sponsoring a number of our Turkish health coaching students to go through the CMBM training. Our students are not only passionate about health coaching but also determined to help others when they can. FMCA is proud to know that this effort to help the people of Turkey was organized in part by one of our amazing graduates.
We want to help our students give back to their community in its time of need. Let's help the people of Turkey find a path to healing.
Our thoughts go out to those affected by the earthquake.
