TAPS Institute for Hope and Healing | Arlington, Virginia
Registration Close Date: September 20, 2019

Held at the TAPS Heaquarters, this workshop designed for survivors and presented by Eileen O'Grady and Paul Tschudi, will start by acknowledging the loss and each person's unique experience with bravery. It will offer ideas on the central importance of pursuing meaning and purpose. A framework for human flourishing will help identify what fully engages us (now or in the past). Resilience will be explored, as well as action steps based on the insights gained from the workshop.
