After Shock - Humanities Perspectives on Trauma, November 11 - 13

What a great honor! I have been invited to speak on a panel with two trusted friends at the annual conference of the Maine Humanities Council in Washington, D.C. The is a wonderful opportunity for me to continue Dr. Gala True's discussion thread "Wounded Warriors and the Healing Power of Stories". I will also have an opportunity to take part in a commentary panel after a presentation of Theater of War. Please visit the conference web site and consider donating to this worthy cause. Again, this is a great honor for myself and my family and a tribute to Veterans of all wars. I hope to see you there!

"Join us to explore ways in which the humanities—including literature, theater and writing—can support the personal and professional development of health care professionals who work with war veterans and others who have experienced trauma. Discover literature’s ability to provide new insights into trauma's effects on your patients—and to sustain you as you care for them. Learn about a range of innovative programs, best practices, and how to implement a humanities-based program in your own facility."
