In this webinar Dr. Richard Mollica, director of the Harvard Program in Refugee Trauma, discussed how there is a deep human reality that lies at the heart of violent experiences that must play a central role in healing and recovery. This webinar will present a toolkit for addressing these life experiences and healing the wounds of mass violence by focusing on the patient’s mental health and physical needs.
Dr. Mollica will discuss the 11 point toolkit which includes diagnosis and treatment, reinforcing self-healing, reducing high risk behaviors and preventing burnout.
