Monday, February 12th, 9 to 5pm @ RLC’s Bowen Center, 235 Chestnut Street, Springfield
This training on trauma explores a non-clinical definition of trauma created by a survivor of extreme traumatic experience. The training looks at how and why trauma becomes locked within the body and the effects unresolved trauma has on the mind. The training explores behaviors and thinking patterns related to unresolved traumatic experience and offers ways of freeing ourselves from the confines of traumatic experiences. The training explores the heightened vulnerability to experiencing trauma by being a member of a minority group.
