TRANSGENERATIONAL TRAUMA WEBINAR
Date: Saturday October 7, 2023 | 12:00PM ET
Location: Zoom Webinar
This topic is now more important than ever as our community faces yet another tragedy. Let's all become aware of what it is, the symptoms and how it shows up in our communities and focus on how we can work to heal as a community moving forward. We'll share tools and tips for healing and coping and open up for questions.
