What is the Trauma & Recovery Conference?
The Connecticut Women’s Consortium’s Trauma & Recovery Conference aims to explore the realities of trauma as it manifests through individual and community experiences whilst simultaneously acknowledging the multiple pathways to recovery. With a combination of national and local keynote and breakout session presenters, we strive to push the boundaries of traditional trauma treatment and expand the definition of recovery, creating comprehensive, inclusive systems of care. Join us at this inaugural conference, as we seek to promote evidence-based solutions for the many people across the world struggling with the effect of trauma and searching for recovery.
