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.
