The Transforming Life Counseling Center presents “Healing the Fractured Self, the journey to overcome trauma and shame” on Nov. 2.
“For those feeling shame it can have devastating effects both in individuals, marriages, families, churches and in the community,” said Kyle D. McGraw, director of TLCC. “The trauma of both past and present often exacerbates shame, leading to addictions, abuse and even suicide.”
The conference will attempt to address ways shame and trauma both impact our society and solutions for healing, McGraw said.
“We welcome mental health professionals and those working in the industry who seek to improve their methods of helping others, while strengthening themselves,” McGraw said.
He added that he wants those who are attending to realize, “You are enough.”
The keynote speaker is Curt Thompson, M.D., a psychiatrist from Falls Church, Va.
