dc.description.abstractViolence has taken the lives of many young people in Boston and has left many other youth traumatized. However, rarely have the youth been asked what they need to heal and move forward with life. The purpose of this project was to create a healing intervention model to give traumatized youth a forum in which they could express their pain and engage in a healing process. The qualitative methodology used focus groups, various methods of creative expression and individual interviews. A final evaluation proved the effectiveness of this intervention model and the need for pastoral aftercare. The findings showed that black churches must partner with professional services organizations due to their lack of resources to meet the needs of trauma victims.en_US
