Members of the community, and particularly those directly affected by last year’s tornadoes in the Moore area, are invited to the Moore Public Library program “Road to Recovery: Coping With Disaster,” set for 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 21, in Room A of the library, 225 S. Howard Ave.
The program will be presented by M. Sue Grantham, from the OKStrong Community Response Team. They’ll provide information for survivors of traumatic events, such as the tornadoes that hit this part of the state last spring.
Participants also will learn how to identify common reactions to disaster for adults, teens and children that may linger well past the date of the actual event. They will also learn effective coping strategies for dealing with stress.
Grantham is a Licensed Professional Counselor and works with OK Strong, a recovery project involved in community response and outreach. She received a Master of Education degree with an emphasis in counseling from Oklahoma City University and is licensed in the state of Oklahoma. For the last 10 years, she has mainly been involved in trauma focused therapy with children, adults and families.
The program is for ages 18 and up, and registration is required. Register online, at the library, or by calling 793-4349.
