11-03-20 Radical Transformational Leadership: What does this imply? Guest Speakers: Ama Delevett and Srilatha Juvva
Well-being world-wide with agency and dignity, without sexual abuse
We invite you to a discussion with Ama Delevett and Srilatha Juvva.
Ama Delevett is a therapist who supports herself and others to deepen their compassion, joy and love for life. Ama has been working with survivors of child sexual abuse for the past 15 years. Srilatha Juvva is a trained psychiatric social worker and currently works as Professor in the School of Social Work at the Tata Institute of Social Sciences in Mumbai, India. She works in the fields of mental health, disability and therapeutic interventions.
Srilatha and Ama invite you to create safe spaces for yourself and others to heal from the trauma and become pro-activists to create the paradigm shift for well-being world-wide. And to create safe spaces for children and youth to authentically share and be supported to live their full potential. Most communities and family do not wish to talk about child abuse — the idea that “other cultures, socioeconomic sphere” etc sexually abuse children. Not true. It happens in all cultures and socio-economic spheres. ACE study was helpful in identifying that.
Ama focuses on child abuse and suggests that we stop being ‘a bystander’. Release shame and do something to help us end child sexual abuse – take Darkness to Light Stewards of Children online training most people want to turn away from this issue. How do we create inviting spaces for people to connect with what they deeply care about and generate change from there? Srilatha shares: the universal values I anchor myself in, underpins everything that I do- in my teaching – where students and I are one. How do we unfold our full potential based on universal values, so that it becomes the foundational unifying factor — the foundation that helps us to solve problems, while interrupting social and cultural norms that are divisive? And establish well-being?
