What is Moving Beyond?
On April 4, 2019, Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) will host the inaugural Moving Beyond: Strategies For Thriving After Trauma conference. A dedicated committee representing higher education, health and community organizations across Northeast Ohio has developed a comprehensive program — the only one of its kind — focused on recognizing, responding to and recovering from domestic abuse, sexual violence and childhood victimization and offering a trauma-informed look into these adverse events that affect so many in our community.
Moving Beyond will offer strategies for recovery and success, including on-site counseling for students and other attendees, and provide local resources for further healing.
