Victims Of Homicide Symposium
May 27, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 3:30 pm
When family and loved ones become the co-victims of an act of homicide, the pain and anger that is felt can be incredible. First responders and medical professionals who support and assist with these kinds of traumatic losses are often also deeply impacted by the hurt and suffering that they witness.
Join us on May 27th, at the Chateau Louis Conference Centre in Edmonton, for this year’s Alberta Victims of Homicide Symposium. This is an in-person event. There is a small registration fee of $35.00/person – this includes a light breakfast and a lunch, for each attendee.
Kim Silverthorn BA, RPC, MPCC, CT of Tacit Knowledge will be facilitating two different sessions at this year’s Symposium. In the morning, participants will have the opportunity to Understand Anger – the stages/levels that exist, the purposes it serves, and the ripple effects/complications that often accompany it. And in the afternoon, attendees will be introduced to a variety of Hands-on Strategies to Help Cope With Anger – designed to help people know how to process their anger in a healthy way (instead of stuffing it), and to effectively address the emotions that accompany it, especially as they work through traumatic loss or grief as a result of the injustices that sometimes occur in this world.
The information that will be shared in both of these sessions will be suitable for all personalities, ages, and circumstances. Kim has over 30 years of experience as a therapist, and often works with families/agencies who are trying to effectively address the stress that exists in their lives.
