Free Public Event: the Healing Power of Relationships in Trauma Recovery

Stress injuries from traumatic incidents are not limited to soldiers and first responders. Car accidents, medical emergencies and criminal victimization are just some of the traumatic events people experience in civilian life.

Debilitating physiological and psychological symptoms often develop after such events, with or without a diagnosis of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

The Alberta Lieutenant Governor’s Circle on Mental Health and Addictions is hosting an upcoming forum on the causes, symptoms and treatment of psychological trauma, including PTSD. The forum will look at how trauma affects families and how treatment can be successful in the family context.

The January 17 forum is open to the public, free and features one of Canada’s leading experts on trauma recovery, Ryerson University’s Dr. Candice Monson. Dr. Monson’s research interests and expertise include the effective use of couples therapy to treat trauma.
