Join us for an informative time as we discuss trauma and its effects in adults and children. Although news reports and discussions tend to focus on war, abused children, domestic violence, suicide, and natural disasters, trauma can also be caused by a single event, a prolonged event, or repeated events. It overwhelms us with intense fear, helplessness, or horror. Trauma physically affects the brain and the body, causing anxiety, anger, and the inability to concentrate. Victims have problems remembering, trusting, and forming relationships. We will look at the long-term impacts of trauma on society and pathways to recovery, as we consider integrating Biblical principles and best mental health practices to bring hope into a hurting world.
