Spectrum’s 101 Friends Personal Support Networks project is excited to once again host David Pitonyak this year, talking more deeply about a topic that he touched on last year that was of interest to many participants in one of our most successful events.
Supporting a Person with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
This day-long workshop examines the impact of trauma in the lives of people who experience disabilities. Many experience Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) as a result of early loss of family (institutionalization), medical procedures, treatment procedures, sexual and physical abuse. This workshop explores strategies for helping people to heal, even in the aftermath of extraordinary suffering.
Friday, 9 – 4:30, Oct 1st, 2010
Vancouver Unitarian Church at 949 West 49th Avenue
$100.00 including lunch. To register, email firstname.lastname@example.org or 604-323-1433 or online at http://www.spectrumsociety.org/PSN/pages/pitonyakptsd2010.aspx

|About Spectrum’s Personal Support Networks Project, 101 Friends: Beginning 3 years ago with a small six month CLBC grant and a vision of supporting folks with disabilities to expand and deepen their connections in their communities, we’ve become increasingly passionate about the potential of those we support to not only join more fully in their communities, but provide leadership and enrichment. We’ve facilitated groups from Nashville TN to Ft St John, meeting staff, self-advocates and families.||
