Community Evenings: Understanding and Recognising PTSD

Published on 24th Jul, 2023

The cyclone caused immense physical and psychological harm to people we love and care about. During the recovery phase, it is important that all members of our communities have the latest and most up-to-date information about identifying and managing the effects that we will see or may be seeing of trauma and PTSD.

During this evening’s talk, we will cover…
– The latest neuroscience of how trauma can affect the mind and the body.
– Differentiation between normal reactions to a disaster and signs someone may have PTSD.
– What you might expect to see in the next 1-5 years in the stages of post-disaster recovery.
– The latest insights and techniques for addressing a wide range of trauma.

Bring along a friend, neighbor, colleague, or family member. No R.S.V.P required.

We look forward to welcoming you to this important learning.

This event is sponsored by the Catholic Diocese of Palmerston North Cyclone Relief Fund.
