Event description

Description

Veterans often experienced intense stress and/or trauma during service to their country. This training explores ways to transform past trauma into a path toward growth and purpose. In addition, there can be secondary trauma for care-givers of highly stressed or traumatized individuals. This training will explore some ways to ameliorate that situation and also examine self-care techniques. We will look at avenues for the care-giver to find their own growth through the experience of working with these individuals. These classes are appropriate for anyone who has experienced challenging and stressful events due to military service (their own service or the service of a family member). It is not focused on diagnoses and labeling, but instead is focused on how to empower people to move beyond difficult situations.
