On behalf of Building Healthy Communities: Long Beach, the Cambodian Coalition, The MAYE Center, and The California Endowment, all community members are invited to join Dr. Richard F. Mollica for a three-day symposium called “Trauma, Healing, and Resiliency: The Healing Fields” from January 27 to 29 at First Congregational Church.

Kicking off the three-day symposium will be our BHC Breakfast and Learning Club on Healing Invisible Wounds, featuring author and keynote speaker Dr. Richard F. Mollica of the Harvard Program in Refugee Trauma. Community members who have read Healing Invisible Wounds will have an opportunity to discuss the book and participate in an informal dialogue with Dr. Mollica.
