"Why a Symposium on Healing Trauma?
Unresolved psychological trauma, especially PTSD, has been found to cause tremendous suffering and often goes untreated and unhealed.
When trauma is not healed it can be the underlying cause of lasting inflammation, chronic pain, chronic diseases and relational illness. Even less extreme cases can be painfully isolating and debilitating for the individual and their loved ones.
We offer periodic events to anyone who is interested in healing trauma. Please join us and take advantage of the resources offered on this site. To learn more about how we started, click here.
