James Encinas’s first book, Wheeling to Healing…Broken Heart on a Bicycle: Understanding and Healing Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) built a foundation of hope for healing embedded memories of trauma from childhood. The second book, a companion, Your Own Wheeling to Healing, offers readers a way to own their process of healing, and to share it with others.
A former actor and grade school teacher, now a parent education specialist, teacher trainer and public speaker, James Encinas uses his creative skills in experiential workshops to instruct participants about the impact of trauma on childhood development. The non-judgmental space he creates allows probationers to engage in healing their emotional damage, learn about prevention of future child abuse and domestic violence, and to educate teachers to work with students who live in unsafe environments. James wrote Wheeling to Healing...Broken Heart on a Bicycle: Understanding and Healing from Adverse Childhood Experiences, a book and a 26-week curriculum. He is a Fellow from the first class of Aspen Institute's Teacher Leaders, a member of the Aspen Global Leadership Network and an activist for healing.
