    Medical Trauma

    Virtual Medical MyTime 


    About this event

    Have your child’s healthcare experiences left you feeling emotionally overwhelmed? Whether you’ve had to face a new diagnosis for your child, they’ve undergone a difficult procedure or simply interacting with health care professional leaves you stressed and anxious.

    Medical trauma is something many of us raising a child with disability and complex medical needs have experienced. These feelings can be particularly intense and our responses to situations can vary.

    We will be joined at MyTime by Kylie Ferguson, who is completing her Masters of Counseling, and is a the mother of an autistic child. Kylie will delve into the concept of medical trauma, the recognition of our physical and emotional responses, and where to seek support.

    Join this peer group discussion to share your experiences, connect with others who understand, and find support on your journey.
