(from event announcement) How do seemingly unrelated but overwhelming global events connect to create complex trauma? How do people ensure that they have the tools to support individuals around developing healing and resiliency from these overwhelming and cumulative traumas?
People are living in a time of unprecedented stress impacting individuals, families and communities across cultures, generations, genders and racial groups. As hope began to emerge that the COVID-19 pandemic might be waning and social isolation nearing an end, new spikes of infection are being reported across the nation. At the same time, the nation is also reckoning with the systemic racism laid bare by the COVID-19 racial disparities and the murder of George Floyd sparking outrage and bringing to light the additional traumas experienced by Black, Indigenous and People of Color.
Join recognized experts on trauma and resilience at the National Council for Behavioral Health for a virtual workshop around how to support individuals in developing healing and resiliency from these overwhelming and cumulative traumas. Learn how to recognize moral injury, identify its signs and gain the tools to address the traumatic impact of the current environment and support healing and a resilient recovery.
