You Are Not Alone Trauma Symposium
Date: Friday, November 17, 2023
Time: 9 am – 5 pm ET
OMA Center for Mind, Body, and Spirit is excited to be hosting a one-day Trauma Symposium including the best of our region’s holistic trauma healing experts!
Trauma is pervasive. It is a leading global, public health issue, the extent of which is truly immeasurable. OMA’s mission and goal is to create collaborative conversations regarding the impact of trauma on one’s cognitive, emotional, and physical development as well as one’s interpersonal relationships and life choices. We believe that when we heal ourselves in the present, we heal the generations to come.
Since 2020, we have devoted ourselves to supporting our world of trauma survivors by coming together on a monthly basis for an ongoing panel discussion on healing from trauma. This symposium will bring together several of those panelists to share their resources for healing and resiliency as they address them through complimentary, alternative, and holistic practices. Presentations will be from licensed therapists and certified practitioners who specialize in the following alternative treatments for trauma care: energy healing, EMDR, Brainspotting, movement therapy, and sound healing.
This Symposium is for everyone… Trauma-informed practitioners who are interested in learning more about alternative methods to support their clients in healing from trauma, as well as those on their own journey of healing.
6.5 CEU’s will be available for those in the field of counseling and psychology are available at additional cost.
