Every single person experiences different kinds of traumas in their lives. Loss of a loved one—a friend, parent, spouse or child—is something that we all confront at some point. When strong feelings of grief continue, we might feel lost and confused. In addition we might feel off balance when we lose the more intangible things in our life, such as trust, safety, the security of a home, or when we experience things like violence, falls, and accidents. For those of us in the areas affected by Hurricane Irene, these feelings can continue long after the event itself.
This lecture will address the basics: How to identify trauma, loss and grief, and ways we can heal ourselves and our community.
