Event description
Join us for a special event with renowned broadcaster, author and therapist Sian Williams about resilience and recovery from trauma.

About this event

How can we find our own path to recovery after traumatic events?

Renowned as a much-loved and highly respected journalist and broadcaster, Sian Williams has done extensive research into the science of resilience and growth after trauma. After diagnosis, treatment and recovery from breast cancer, Sian wrote Rise: A first aid kit for getting through tough times, offering life-changing advice from experts on how to cope with traumatic experiences and detailing the ups and downs on her own path to recovery.

Sian's research shows that although we often seem resilient in the middle of traumatic events, it’s often the post-trauma recovery period where things get tough and people can really struggle. Sian will share how we can choose what to take forward from our experiences - in order to emerge feeling stronger, more resilient and more compassionate to ourselves and others.

The event will take place on Zoom at 7pm London time (BST).
