“Trauma is hard to speak and hard to hear. But, stories unshared don’t disappear; they return in relationships silently taking prisoners. Telling your story to a compassionate witness, in contrast, can be healing.”
“We believe in the power of words, voice and story to transform isolation into connection, despair into hope, and pain into a meaningful path forward.
“Not only did I learn a lot, but I was also moved, inspired and energized.”
“It was truly moving and inspiring to be in the space to share and learn from so many talented clinicians. It was a great learning experience since most of us work in different settings. I appreciate the community Womencare has created.”
