Project Unbreakable is excited to announce that we are partnering with several organizations for a special event in June! Laura van Dernoot Lipsky, founder of the Trauma Stewardship Institute and author of Trauma Stewardship, will host a day long event in New York City on June 5th, 2013. Laura, a longtime trauma worker, uses a mix of personal insight, research, personal stories, and countless New Yorker cartoons to examine the ways working & witnessing trauma can affect us.
Instead of the usual rate of $90, we are offering a partner rate of $60 from now until the date of the event. To sign up, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. This day is open to anyone who bears witness - social workers, foster parents, nurses, feminist advocates, environmentalists, domestic violence/child abuse shelter volunteers, firefighters, etc. (Or anyone planning on going into any of these fields.)
We at Project Unbreakable are extremely passionate about Laura’s work; in order to take care of others, we need to learn how to take care of ourselves first.
