Virtual Community Conversation to feature Bruce Perry, MD and Ph.D.

We are pleased to announce an upcoming virtual Community Conversation event featuring author Bruce Perry, MD and Ph.D. on Wednesday, September 1, 2021 at 7:00 p.m.

The virtual event will host an insightful conversation with Dr. Perry, co-author of the book “What Happened to You? Conversations on Trauma, Resilience and Healing” with Oprah Winfrey.

“What Happened to You?” discusses the impact of trauma and adversity, and the work of how healing can begin, by shifting conversations to ask “What happened to you?” rather than “What’s wrong with you?” when confronted with difficult behavior.

The virtual event, moderated by FOX5 DC’s Holly Morris, will also provide powerful scientific and emotional insights into behavioral patterns that many of us may struggle to understand.

“With mental health as one of our four priority areas of focus, we’re thrilled to offer the opportunity to hear Dr. Perry’s message,” Christy Connolly, PATH President and CEO said. “We all have unique personal histories, and of course they can impact our lives in different ways.”

In conversation throughout the book, Dr. Perry and Ms. Winfrey focus on understanding people, behavior and ourselves. They share a subtle but profound shift in our approach to trauma and adversity that allows us to understand our pasts to clear a path to our future — opening the door to resilience and healing in a proven, powerful way.

Free copies of the book are available at branches of the Fauquier, Rappahannock and Culpeper public libraries, and at the Open Book in Warrenton, while supplies last. Books are offered on first come, first served basis.
