May 18 Trauma Symposium
Maine Veterans For Peace is presenting its War Trauma Symposium, Caring Communities Coming Together, on Saturday, May 18 at the University of Southern Maine, Abromson Center Auditorium, 9:00 am to 4:00 pm .
This promises to be a very informative, exciting and interactive day around a topic that touches so many of our lives directly, and ALL of us indirectly.
"War ravages all who fall victim to it, from those who serve in warring armies to those non-combatants caught in the crossfire. Over the past decade that number includes American soldiers fighting in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, who have been returning home to loved ones and back into their communities. Joining them are countless refugees fleeing their war-torn countries to seek a new life in Maine. All have in common the experience of war in its many manifestations. All must somehow work within their communities to piece together a life free from the immediate stresses of war. But how? And how can we who want them to succeed help? Those are the questions we'll be addressing in our fifth annual symposium."
Please come to this event. And bring your friends, relatives, neighbors. . .! The cost for the day is only $25 ($50 for health care professionals) which includes lunch. If that seems too big a hit, we will arrange a sliding scale.
Time is getting short, but there is still time to register. Just send me your name, address, phone and email address and I will make sure you are on the list -email@example.com
Thanks, and see you all on Saturday, May 18.
