About The Event

Hundreds of thousands of people will be left traumatised through the loss of loved ones, illness, jobs, and much else.

In this webinar, we will explore the spiritual component of accompanying those affected by COVID 19 through reference to the approaches after the traumas of World War 2 of Jaspers, Frankl, and Levinas as well as through the insights of the late Professor Peter Gilbert.

We will then discuss the therapeutic implications of these approaches with reference to spiritual assessment and trauma-informed practice.

The webinar will be taking place on Thursday 23rd July from 6.15 to 7.30 pm. 

Ben Bano is our speaker for the event, with Kate Loewenthal as discussant
