This webinar Beyond trauma: A space to heal and grow focusses on early life trauma including adult survivors of childhood trauma along with psychosis, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and depression.
It also discusses accidental traumas and non-accidental traumas, coming to terms with a new reality in the aftermath of trauma that prompts growth. People not only recover from life threatening life shattering traumatic events, but also experience positive transformation.
Dr Grace Sheridan shares her research-knowledge of post traumatic outcomes in adult survivors of childhood abuse, cognitive variables and neglection in Ireland.
Cariosa Walsh talks about PTSD symptoms, coping strategies, healthy behaviours, self-compassion and most importantly, hopefulness; how therapy can help you transform your life.
There are many first steps and options available to begin early interventions and coping processes, please refer to the resources below if you wish to find out more.
