Post-traumatic Growth and Resilience – a talk with Leah Harris. Leah Harris is a survivor, activist, and storyteller working for a cultural shift in how we understand and respond to mental health challenges, trauma, addiction, and suicide in our society. She will share her own story of trauma and healing, and discuss some of the common elements that support post-traumatic growth and resilience in people who have experienced traumatic life events and adversities. (Wednesday, September 26, 1:30 – 2:45pm in the Den. Livestream in Arvada 7102.)

Rewriting the Story Workshop with Leah Harris. Following her presentation and discussion, Leah will share some insights she has gained from nearly 20 years of sharing her own story for personal healing and social change, as well as supporting other survivors in their process of doing so. Participants will learn some strategies and best practices for crafting and sharing their own narratives, but there will be no expectation of disclosure of personal experiences in this workshop. (Wednesday, September 26, 3:00 – 4:15pm in Grays Peak.)
