Release Your Resilient Spirit: Resilience Building During COVID-19

July 22 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

JOIN EVA C. VELASQUEZ FOR THIS FREE AFN WEBINAR ON JULY 22, 2020 @ 12:00 PM (EST) AS SHE DISCUSSES BUILDING YOUR RESILIENCY DURING COVID-19.

Learning to place past traumatic events in the proper context of our experience is a life long journey.  We often vacillate between placing our trauma on two ends of the spectrum, either foundation or footnote, but the truth is often between the two.  Using an inspiration through the storytelling model, Author and Victim Advocate Eva Velasquez will share her personal journey as a survivor of childhood sexual abuse and domestic violence, and her resilience-building strategies.

The business world uses techniques for building resilient infrastructure, graceful systems, and elegant solutions.  While the COVID-19 pandemic is a unique experience for everyone, many of us have already used or been exposed to these resiliency tools in other areas of our lives.

Don’t miss your opportunity to:

  • Acknowledge that secrets allow our trauma to gain momentum and power, and sharing those secrets diminishes that power.
  • Provide clear and actionable processes to practice resilience individually.
  • Provide clear and actionable processes to practice resilience in a group.

WEBINAR HOST
EVA C. VELASQUEZ

AUTHOR/VICTIM ADVOCATE

Eva C. Velasquez is the author of The Monster Inside: Surviving Sexual Abuse and Architecting a Life of Resiliency.  As a sexual abuse survivor turned victim advocate she is living proof that survivors can architect a life of resilience.  She understands the trauma and complex emotions that survivors of sexual abuse experience as they attempt to navigate the world after abuse.

By sharing her story, from childhood sexual abuse victim to pregnant high school drop out to CEO of a national victim services organization, Eva wants other survivors to realize they do not have to define themselves only by their abuse.  Eva chose to use her past experiences as a catalyst to help and protect others.  She is the recipient of the Department of Justice National Service Award (National Crime Victims’ Rights Week, April 2019) for her work with identity and cyber-crime victims.  With the support of her husband and three adult children, she continues to share her message of hope, inspiration, and resilience.
