Delaware Hospice's Lunch Bunch May 2: 'Post Traumatic Growth'

Apr 25, 2014

Delaware Hospice’s Family Support Center will hold a Lunch Bunch Lecture from noon to 1:30 p.m., Friday, May 2, at the Delaware Hospice Center, 100 Patriots Way, Milford. Dr. Judy Pierson, clinical psychologist, will discuss “Post Traumatic Growth: The Gifts of Adversity.”

While traumatic experiences clearly take an emotional toll, research suggests they can also trigger emotional growth. Traumatic experiences can create flashbacks, nightmares and other distressing symptoms.  But if the feelings associated with a difficult experience can be acknowledged and safely expressed, and support is sought out and accepted, the wounds inflicted can heal.

The public is invited to learn how to transform adversity into growth and to discover the five key dimensions of post-traumatic growth.

Lunch Bunch Lectures are organized by Delaware Hospice’s Family Support Center and are open to the public.

Registration is required as seating capacity is limited, and the cost of lunch is $5 per person.

Register by Wednesday, April 30, by contacting Michele August at 302-856-7717 or 302-478-5707 or email maugust@delawarehospice.org.
