Healing for personal resilience and empowerment

Understanding and Healing Trauma Workshop

Sunday, April 18, 2 - 4 pm
At the Alger Community Hall
18735 Parkview Lane, Burlington, WA (next to the fire station)

The year of Covid-19 lockdown has been a difficult experience for most. Many have gained a new awareness of the pain we carry from our past as we deal with the challenges and heartaches of the present. Chuckanut Transition has organized this workshop because we recognize a need to increase personal resilience and empowerment.

The workshop, Sunday, April 18th, will be led by Maureen Sweeny Romain, a psychotherapist with 35 years experience who has been practicing in Bellingham for the last 23 years. She is a specialist in working with people who have experienced trauma from both past and present, and guides them through somatic (body related) therapies that treat both developmental and shock traumas.  

Maureen will first introduce the current neuroscience that looks into the impact of trauma on the development of the brain, and how it impacts body and behavior. Then she will cover some of the basic tricks and techniques to help relieve the symptoms of trauma. These simple tools should help empower a person to begin transforming experience and healing deep wounds.

Space is limited, prior sign-up required. Please call or text Trina Forest at (360) 440-4681. We follow CDC guidelines. Hall capacity is limited to 25 and masks required. This is a by donation event. 

Happy Healing,
Chuckanut Transition Organizing Committee
