Dialogue 2

Families Living with Trauma Event – Saturday 11th October 2014

October 3, 2014 | Nick Taylor

This free day event is being promoted by the Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Foundation for Peace and will look in depth at how trauma affects people and how you can develop coping strategies to deal with difficult emotions.

This will be a chance for you to learn more about the impact of traumatic events on individuals and families and how trauma affects people in the months and sometimes years following events.

You will have an opportunity to hear from others who may be going through similar experiences and how they cope on a day to day basis.

There is also a chance to talk informally together (if you wish) to gain support from each other and consider different strategies for dealing with trauma.

We will be joined by a team from Chester who work with Drug and Alcohol issues who will discuss issues around those affected by trauma.

This event may particularly be of interest to those supporting family members impacted by trauma.

This event will take place on Saturday 11th October 2014 at the Peace Centre in Warrington.

Registration with refreshments starts at 10.30am and the programme will start at 11:00am, finishing at 4.00pm.

This is a free event and refreshments and lunch will also be provided. Bursaries are available for those needing assistance with travel expenses

Event registration is now closed but please contact Ann Beswick in the event that last minute places become available.
