New Bern, NC – The Coastal Coalition for Substance Awareness & Prevention (CCSAP) will be hosting the 2022 Resilience Symposium: Building Hope on Friday, September 30th from 8am-5pm at the New Bern Riverfront Convention Center. This in-person event is only $40, features internationally-respected leader and speaker in the PACEs science movement Becky Haas, and includes lunch and snacks catered by Posh Nosh.
The past two years have been stressful, even traumatic form many, helping us recognize the importance of connections and learning strategies to enhance our ability to bounce forward and thrive. Building on the momentum from the 2021 Resilience Symposium, this year’s symposium will offer more strategies to cultivate resiliency, build hope, and create safe, stable environments to thrive in our work, lives, and communities. Please join us for an engaging day of speakers, trainers, and therapists on creating trauma-informed multidisciplinary teams, ways to use social and emotional learning as best practices in your work, the impact of adversity on relational health, developing resilience, overcoming burnout, building protective factors, how to recognize human trafficking, and how to recognize and reverse an overdose. There will also be sessions on self-care, art therapy and EMDR, music therapy and creative arts expression, restorative yoga, as well as 10-minute chair massages throughout the day. Lastly, we will close the day with a motivating keynote on how to move from being trauma aware to being trauma informed.
