About this event

Join other survivors on a journey towards happiness in the esteemed program that the Route 91 family has been utilizing for years. For the first time, this no-cost program will be available online with John Polish of the Unstuck Foundation while simultaneously facilitated in-person with Terri Keener at the Vegas Strong Resiliency Center. Over the course of five Tuesdays, you'll participate in two-hour weekly sessions that will equip you with the necessary tools to find joy in life once more.

During these sessions, you'll listen to insightful discussions on trauma recovery and engage in small group activities. There will also be time for personal reflection and group discussions, allowing you to connect with others who've shared similar experiences from October 1, 2017, and beyond.

You'll have the opportunity to apply the knowledge gained to your own circumstances and create a personalized plan for ongoing personal growth. To support your progress, you'll receive a workbook that serves as a helpful reference during presentations and activities.

Educational portions of each session are recorded and participants can view makeup sessions or review them upon request. Upon completion of the program, there will be monthly meetings for follow-up, ongoing connections, and continued application of skills and information learned.

Please note that the Moving Beyond program requires a commitment of five weeks. We strongly encourage attending all sessions, but if you need to miss a week, we'll provide makeup content to keep you on track.
