Healing Together: An Evening with Dr. Hillary McBride

May 11 7:00 - 8:00 pm  |  WMPC Campus

Wednesday, May 11 | 7:00 p.m. | WMPC campus

More than ever, we are coming into cultural awareness about the reality of trauma and the need to understand it and address it, both individually and collectively. But what is trauma? How does it impact us? How do we heal from it? And what, if anything, do our spirituality and our communities of faith have to do with our ability to mend our wounds? In this talk, psychologist Dr. Hillary McBride will share neuroscience and research-based psychological insights in accessible, meaningful, and practical ways so we can better understand and live into how we heal, in our own journeys and alongside one another.

In order for us to have an accurate headcount for seating, registration will close at noon on Tuesday, May 10. Registration for childcare is now closed. 

Masks are optional for this event. If you would prefer to view Dr. McBride’s talk in a mask-required space, there will be an option to stream her talk in The Hub (L-111).

This event is co-sponsored by: Christ Church, Edenton Street United Methodist Church, First Presbyterian Church Raleigh, Hudson Memorial Presbyterian Church, Hayes Barton Baptist Church, Hayes Barton United Methodist Church, and White Memorial Presbyterian Church.
