This month’s speaker is Tim Hansen on the topic “Restorative Justice: Post Traumatic Strength & Development!”


“I’ve been playing with the idea of a new definition of ‘PTSD’—Post Traumatic Strength & Development!” says Hansen. “How do we evolve and grow stronger as a result of traumatic events in our lives?  As my mother used to tell me, ‘What doesn’t destroy you makes you stronger.’ This can be true in our own lives.”


In this talk, learn how Restorative Justice offers some ways to make healing a reality in the aftermath of crime. 


Tim Hansen, LCSW, has worked with victims, offenders, and communities for over 30 years.  He holds an MSW from UH-Manoa and a BA in Psychology and Speech/Theatre Arts from the University of Minnesota-Winona.  He is Restorative Justice Program Manager at Hawai‘i County Office of the Prosecuting Attorney and has been adjunct faculty at UH-Hilo in the Sociology and Political Science Departments.  As a survivor, Hansen is passionate about the work of healing. 



Ku‘ikahi's Brown Bag Lunch Series is free and open to the public.  Attendees are encouraged to bring their own lunch, enjoy an informal and educational talk-story session, and meet others interested in "Finding Solutions, Growing Peace."
