How We Heal our Trauma with Guest Speaker – Rebekah Demirel 

“When we face and eventually, integrate our difficult experiences, we can become stronger and more resilient people.”

What is trauma? A deeply distressing or disturbing experience.

The word covers a wide range of experiences from child abuse, serious illness, long term unemployment, divorce, bullying, homelessness, spousal abuse, addictions, sexual molestation, the death of a parent or a child, the threat of gun violence, moving to a new, unknown location to war!!!

On Wednesday, June 6, 2018 at 7 o’clock in Lena Voorhies room at Richmond Beach Congregational Church, United Church of Christ, we bring you Rebekah Demirel.

Rebekah Demirel is a clinical counselor and trauma specialist, acupuncturist and East Asian medicine practitioner and former ambulance paramedic. Her professional background and her personal history of early adversity has facilitated the development of her Trauma Integration Programs trainings presented for many social service, medical professionals and other groups for the past fifteen years, helping them be “well enough to do the job of caring for others.”

Rebekah, herself, is a living testament, showing that nothing and no one is beyond redemption. This personal belief of an ever-present and unending pool of grace for everyone is at the core of her trauma integration training work and all she does, helping people find peace and joy in their lives.

In her debut book, Nothing’s for Nothing – Transformation Through Trauma, Rebekah recounts stories of childhood violence, abuse and neglect, forcing her to leave home at age thirteen, for an uncertain future on Vancouver’s streets and in foster care, while also found throughout those pages are stories of hope, understanding, reconciliation, forgiveness and healing of her painful past.

So we invite you to come and explore ways to integrate and begin healing. Ms. Demirel will speak, read stories and answer questions. It promises to be an informative evening. Wednesday, 6th of June in Lena Voorhies room at 7 o’clock – Richmond Beach Congregational Church, 1512 NW 195th St., Shoreline.
