Annual Conference on Transgenerational Trauma – Amman

6TH ANNUAL CONFERENCE ON TRANSGENERATIONAL TRAUMA HOSTED BY COMMON BOND INSTITUTE (CBI) – HTTP://CBIWORLD.ORG/CONFERENCES/TT/PROGRAM/

The 75-minute presentation that Nicholas gave on The Pocket Project, attended by about 40 people, was well received. The Pocket Project brings a special depth in perspective and practice to the table, and the conference was an opportunity for people to get a taste of this. Nicholas was also able to make some strong contributions from a mystical perspective to group circle and discussion sessions.

Many engaging and engaged conversations were had with the other participants, including inspiring accounts of really excellent, often courageous work being done ‘on the ground’ in challenging circumstances. Nicholas was particularly touched by the eagerness for new perspectives from the young Muslim women in attendance. There is a good possibility that Nicholas will assist with, if not lead, a local Pocket Training group with some of the young Muslim social workers and medical students.
