MAMFT Annual Conference
Healing Community Trauma:
A Relational Approach
Featuring Dr. Kenneth Hardy
Wellesley College Club
How do we help our clients process trauma that we ourselves are deeply impacted by? What can we do to spot violence, turn around hatred, and understand rage as we ourselves are trying to make sense of the senseless?
On the first year anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombing, MAMFT has invited Dr. Ken Hardy to present on the anatomy of community trauma and how therapy can be used to promote healing and transformation. The conference will examine ways to effectively work with community trauma and the lives and relationships affected by it, particularly looking at critical Self-of-the-Therapist issues that may impede effective work with families affected by trauma.
Dr. Hardy is a well known writer and public speaker on working with oppressed and traumatized children and families. He co-developed a curriculum for Trauma Based Family Therapy that was used to train mental health practitioners following the September 11th attacks. He is the former Director for the Center for Children, Trauma, and Families at the Ackerman Institute for the Family in NYC, and currently a professor of Family Therapy at Drexel University in Philadelphia.
This event is co-sponsored by Therapy Training Boston.
