Do we get over it? Do we get on with it? What is grieving? How do we transform traumatic loss into an enduring presence that we use for connection and healing? Against the backdrop of traumatic impact, Dr. Suzanne B. Phillips will invite us to recognize that the road from trauma to hope and healing is neither predictable nor time-sensitive.
Message from the Director
What are the long-term implications for families who have experienced trauma? How do stories about tragedy and remembrances of those who have been lost get weaved into the narrative of a child's family legacy? What are the mind-body connections that help one understand the intimate relationship of the mind and body, and how do we tap into these tools to optimize our health?
