UNITED SIKHS Partners in a Symposium on Interfaith Perspectives on Communal Trauma and Harmony in New York

The Interfaith Center of New York, the Fordham University Graduate School of Social Service,
and our partners, invite all mental health professionals to attend a symposium 

Interfaith Perspectives on Communal Trauma and Healing: Religious Leaders and Mental Health Professionals Explore the Emotional Life of the City at the 10th Anniversary of 9/11
As they support New Yorkers during and after the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, mental health professionals can learn a great deal from the city’s diverse religious traditions. In their own vocabularies, these traditions offer invaluable resour-ces for understanding experiences of trauma and healing.
Come learn from your colleagues and local religious leaders in an exploration of interfaith perspectives on communal trauma and healing.
The half-day symposium will include:
Union Square, September 13, 2001
 A panel discussion with leading mental health practitioners who bring both spiritual and psychological perspectives to bear on experiences of communal trauma.
 Small group workshops offering hands-on introductions to the thera- peutic resources found in diverse religious traditions – including ritual, meditation, text, story, and song.
 Lunch for participants, and a performance by the Peace of Heart Choir.
Join us on Friday, September 9th, 9 am to 1:30 pm, at Fordham University’s Lincoln Center Campus. Enter at 60th Street and Columbus Avenue.
