Pasadena Villa Outpatient Center – Raleigh joined with Wilmington Treatment Center to co-host a wonderfully attended Lunch and Learn on October 18, 2017. Around 30 local therapists and administrators enjoyed lunch as they learned more about the impact of trauma on the brain and practical ways to help foster recovery.
Dr. Amie Sharrits, Medical Director at Pasadena Villa Outpatient Center, shared her insights and addressed the many questions from those in attendance. One attendee commented that “Dr. Sharrits was able to simplify the functioning of the brain and impact of trauma to where I could understand it and not get lost in the scientific details.” Everyone left with practical ways to intervene as well as a list of choice authors for continued readings.
“Trauma is a disease of not being here.” – Pierre Janet
