Trauma Briefing webinar: For those affected by the earthquake in Turkey and Syria

This is a 45-min community webinar followed by 15-mins for Q&A and discussion. This session is confidential, and attendance is anonymous. Attendees are not required to share what they witnessed or experienced.

The trauma that many are currently experiencing has occurred not only from the devastation of the earthquake in Turkey and Syria, but from the invisible injury that the event has imprinted on the mind, body, and soul. Whether you were directly near the epicenter or further away, or if you experienced seconds and thoughts of not knowing if your loved ones or connections were/are safe, or if you have watched mounting video footage and distressing news coverage on social media in recent days - you may be experiencing the impact of trauma. This session will help you understand how trauma may impact you and those around you, while also helping to create an inner map of how to navigate the shapeshifting terrain of trauma.


Anyone who has been directly or indirectly impacted by the devastating earthquake in Turkey and Syria, no matter where you live in the world.


  • How trauma and secondary trauma may be impacting you emotionally, psychologically, and physically
  • The role of grief
  • How to care for yourself
  • How to care for others (what to say, and what not to say)
  • How to recognize the signs that you, or someone you care for, may need additional support

Cost: This is a free-of-cost webinar for the community.
