New York City Symposium


VOICES Resiliency Symposium
Knowledge to Practice:
Pathways to Long-Term Healing
A Victim-Centered Approach
Monday, September 9, 2019
VOICES Resiliency Symposium, Knowledge to Practice: Pathways to Long-Term Healing, brought together leading researchers, mental health practitioners and government agencies providing support services for victims’ families, survivors and responders, in the United States and abroad.
The event was a unique opportunity to bridge the gap between research and practice, as well as to learn from individuals who have been directly affected by acts of terrorism and mass violence.
A very special thank you to our sponsors - Motley Rice; Turken, Heath and McCauley; Kreindler & Kreindler; the FealGood Foundation and Barasch & McGarry whose generosity made our annual events possible. Thanks to the dozens of individuals who contributed to the program, including our presenters and volunteers from Goldman Sachs and National Debt Relief.
