Then & Now:   The Impacts of Trauma & Childhood Adversity 

October 17, 2018        6:30 – 9 pm; free     Parksville Conference & Community Centre; Jensen Ave.

Adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) are stressful or traumatic events, including abuse and neglect. They may also include household dysfunction such as witnessing domestic violence, growing up with family members who have substance use disorders, mental health issues or merely, chronic ‘not good enough’ parenting.  Often we think our childhood was “okay,” yet the often unacknowledged emotional, psychological and even spiritual wounds follow us into adulthood, indicating that there is something deeper at play in our choices and behaviours.

Learn about:

  • types of trauma (from womb, childhood abuse, developmental trauma, and onwards)
  • impacts of trauma on one’s sense of self, emotions, relationships and world view
  • neurological changes
  • how one adapts to trauma
  • accessing our inner healing nature
  • You will be ‘trauma-informed’!

What participants are saying …

“You are a very engaging leader . . . informed, intelligent and humorous.”

“You are a warm and inspiring presenter and facilitator. Thank you for sharing your gifts.”

“I enjoyed every activity – it was fun and insightful.”

“Thank you for a great experience.”
