Virtual Interactive Webinar: Communicating about Trauma

Thursday, May 12, 2022
11:00 AM – 12:00 PM

Families Matter Research Group Interactive Series: Communicating about Trauma

May 12, 2022 at 11AM ET

Communicating about trauma was the top priority recognized by participants at the recent launch of the Queen's University based Families Matter Research Group. In response, we invite families of public safety personnel (PSP) – e.g., police, firefighters, corrections, 911 dispatchers, etc. – to join us as we welcome two therapists who specialize in working with individuals who have been exposed to trauma as well as those who are close to them. Dr. Tim Black, R. Psych., Associate Professor of Counselling Psychology, University of Victoria, and National Clinical Co-Advisor, Wounded Warriors Canada, will discuss trauma – what it is and why we need to deal with it, and Dr. Rachel Dekel, Full Professor in the School of Social Work, Bar-Ilan University, Israel, will discuss how trauma can present itself in couples. A moderated question and answer session will follow. Participants can safely and anonymously submit questions ahead of time as well as during the event.

While this is an open event and all are welcome, please note, registration is required. Information gathered from this event will play a central role in growing a network that will serve and support PSP families across Canada. Following the event, attendees will be asked to complete a survey to inform the format, frequency, and themes of future PSP Families Network activities.
