$20 by December 7th and $25 thereafter – Via Zooom
Using the lens of both a therapist and a bereaved mother Nancy’s presentation will take participants through her personal experience of traumatic loss. She will provide a working definition of traumatic grief, liminality, and post traumatic growth; and explain the new understanding of how trauma is stored in our bodies. As loss and trauma are part of the human condition, Nancy’s story and hard earned coping skills are relevant for all of us when faced with distress. The presentation will be interactive, with time for comments and questions before closure.
