Reunion Issue No. 3

In the third issue of Reunion, we address the effects that domestic violence can have on women, children and families. We continue to highlight our Heal the Healers program and some of the countless professionals who work to support survivors of violence and abuse.  We explore creative expression as a modality that can help connect people at all stages of life or in their recovery from trauma to their that inner healing voice.

Not only does this issue continue to foster a greater sense of community for those who read it, but it provides tools that can help inspire readers to take action and become more involved in efforts to prevent and end violence.
