SATURDAY AUGUST 15, 2020: 5 CEU’s
“Trauma, A Growing Epidemic in Families: The Need for Treatment and Healing”
9:00 AM—3:30 PM (breaks included)
Presented by Dr. Lucy R. Cannon, LCSW, CCDP-D, MATS

Once upon a time, we as a society did not have to see or hear about trauma events because of a lack of technology. Today, we have the capabilities to see trauma scenes from our own personal experiences with trauma to seeing it played out in our world through television, radio, newspaper, cell phones, YouTube, and other forms of media because of the continuous advancement of technology. Victims of trauma are oftentimes mentally and emotionally devastated over various types of trauma events. Mental health professionals have spent a great deal of time providing treatment for victims of trauma with limited inclusion of family members. This workshop will assist healthcare professionals in helping individuals and family members work through trauma and help them develop effective coping skills.
