Getting Through it All: Trauma Basics

Tuesday, December 1, 2020

In this moment in history – and with the holiday season added on top – how does one cope? We’ll learn about some healthy tactics.

The current pandemic and its related isolation; a seemingly-heightened period of societal polarization; the holidays: how trauma affect us in this particular moment in time and how can we work to cope long-term?

RTS will be joining us to share a workshop surrounding Trauma Basics and how trauma impacts people. Be with us as we discuss healthy coping mechanisms going into what is, for many, a potentially-stressful season.
