Facing Adversity: How to move on from violence, trauma, and serious illness


How can we move on from extreme adversity such as relational trauma, serious illness and organised violence? Join Professor of Mental Health Zoë Chouliara on World Mental Health Day as she explores how human beings can cope and even find personal growth following traumatic events, by learning to harness relationships that aid their recovering.


Zoë is an award winning clinical academic, who was named one of the Top 100 Nation’s Lifesavers by Universities UK for her work with survivors of childhood abuse. She is the lead author of Acts of Recovery, the first research-based, survivor-centred self-help booklet for childhood abuse, which is used in the UK and overseas. She was nominated for an Equal Opportunities Award by the British Psychological Society, and was part of the team awarded the British Journal of Nursing Dermatology Award in 2016.


This free event will be held in the Main Lecture Theatre on Thursday 10 October at 6pm, followed by a drinks reception.
