Upcoming Conferences Focus on Resilience and Recovery
As we recently posted, Refuge: Caring for Survivors of Torture will be shown as part of the 10th Annual Film Festival at the American Public Health Association’s annual conference, Think Global, Act Local. The showing is scheduled for Tuesday, November 5th, 2:30 PM-4:00 PM. You can contact APHA for further information.
The next day, I’ll be flying to Philadelphia, where Refuge will be shown at the 29th Annual Meeting of the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies. Refuge perfectly addresses the conference theme: “Resilience After Trauma: From Surviving to Thriving.” The screening is scheduled for 12:00 noon on November 7th (brown-bag lunches will be available to attendees).
