Healing Centered Engagement (HCE)

HCE image

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, the mental health crisis in our schools has become increasingly more severe, and the consequences can be distressing and potentially tragic. FEA has developed an impactful in-district program that has helped many school districts throughout the state support students (and adults) grappling with Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and trauma through a framework of Healing Centered Engagement (HCE) that supports Positive Childhood Experiences (PCEs). If your students (and educators) are struggling, you can allocate your ESSER funds for FEA’s HCE program, which empowers staff to identify and address the systemic issues hindering students and teachers from attaining their highest educational and personal goals.

“If I could recommend this specific program to every school I would absolutely do it. I have already reached out to a couple of schools because they need it. They just need the training and the connections and the resources to build a foundation for improvement for themselves and for their school community.”
– Dr. Denise King, HCE Coach
