Dr. Julia DiGangi will speak on healing from adversity.

If you’re curious about the mental indent left from the previous year as well as positive ways to cope with extensive trauma, join the psychology department on Wednesday for part two of Moraine Valley’s 14th annual psychology department mental health program.

The follow up event of “Your Brain in Times of Adversity: Stress and Finding Resilience” will be held via WebEx and presented by Dr. Julia DiGangi, president and clinician at NeuroHealth Partners. This second event, “Adversity, Trauma, Stress and The Brain: Healing from Adversity” will begin at 11 a.m. and is expected to wrap up around 12:30 p.m. However, those who attend can join and leave at any point.

The discussion will center on the way this past year has impacted mental health, what science says about the brain’s power to heal, and the best ways to move forward psychologically.

The event is sponsored by the division of Liberal Arts and the department of Behavioral Sciences and is free of charge to students and the community at large. No reservations are needed.
