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.

You Are Not Alone

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 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 availabe at additional cost. Coffee, tea, and light refreshments upon arrival. Lunch is on your own.

Group Rates Available:

Contact if you have a group of 3 or more attending for a discounted rate.
