Trauma, Healing and Growth with Dr. Lisa Andermann
Presented by The Luke Sklar Mental Health Initiative
October 18, 7:30 pm
Many of us have been faced with trauma in our own lives or in the lives of those closest to us.
It is fundamentally life-altering. Normal is no longer normal.
We’re unsure of what’s happened to us and how to process it. What we can do to overcome feelings of fear and helplessness in ourselves or in others. How we might begin to cope and take the next small step.
Please join us for this educational ZOOM webinar dealing with the questions:
“What exactly is trauma?” and then “How do we begin the healing process, find hope, and grow from there?”
We are so fortunate to have Dr. Lisa Andermann, MPhil, MD, FRCPC, as our guest speaker.
Dr. Andermann is a Psychiatrist at Mount Sinai Hospital where she works in the Psychological Trauma Clinic as well as the Ethnocultural Assertive Community Treatment Team. In addition to this, she is an Associate Professor and Co-Chair of the Equity and Inclusion Council in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Toronto and is the co-founder the New Beginnings Refugee Clinic at CAMH.
Dr. Andermann will help us better understand what trauma is, and discuss the process and methods of healing from various traumatic events, including the Holocaust and her own work with refugees.
Please register here to join us.
