From Breakdown to Breakthrough: a Roadmap to Trauma Care I Fiona Dunkley I Thursday 27 May at 6pm
Many of us in the humanitarian community experience breakdowns.
Breakdowns are interruptions caused by traumatic experiences as well as burnouts.
Passing through such an interruption is a challenging process, and some take a much longer time than others to put their lives back together.
However, “where there is a poison, a cure is not far away”. While we attempt to fix our lives, most are longing to get back to how it was before.
Yet, a breakdown is also an opportunity. It can be a break-up with the past, and make space for something new to grow.
In this Humani-Topic, our expert-speaker, Fiona Dunkley, will explore the concept of Post Traumatic Growth.
We will look at:
Some personal stories, and how challenging experiences can help us support others
How creativity helps us heal – creating the narrative
Some lessons learnt from Covid-19, and taking learning into action
A Trauma Management Programme and preventing re-traumatisation
The webinar will take place on Thursday 27 from 6 to 8pm (CET - Geneva time). You can register at the following address to get the Zoom link: firstname.lastname@example.org
