In this book study, participants will learn about trauma and trauma informed practices by discussing What Happened to You? Conversations About Trauma, Resilience and Healing by Bruce Perry and Oprah Winfrey.
From the publisher’s website:
Our earliest experiences shape our lives far down the road, and “What Happened to You?” provides powerful scientific and emotional insights into the behavioral patterns so many of us struggle to understand. Through deeply personal conversations, Oprah Winfrey and renowned brain and trauma expert Dr. Bruce Perry offer a groundbreaking and profound shift from “What’s wrong with you?” to “What happened to you?”.
Opportunities for PDUs and a "choose your own book study adventure": meet virtually for informal discussion and/or reflect more deeply and develop plans for implementing new ideas and strategies for additional PDUs. OEA will provide copies of the print book to participants. Participants receiving a book from OEA must commit to participating in at least 50% of the discussions and/or assignments.
Cost: Members: $0, free as a benefit of membership; Non-members: $75.
Dates and Times: Oct. 3-Nov. 11. Live sessions (6) on Wednesdays at 5 p.m.
