Sedona AZ (February 20, 2018) – The February Mental Health Monday program will feature Carol Landauer, LPC, and US Marine Corps medically retired Sgt Jason Supple talking about “Shifting the Paradigm: From PTSD to Post Traumatic Growth.” The program takes place Monday, February 26, 10AM-11:30AM at Yavapai College, 4215 Arts Village Dr., in Sedona. The program is free, open to the public and is a partnership with the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Yavapai College.
Carol Landauer, LPC will explore the idea of narrowing the lens of the mental illness paradigm and expanding the lens of human experience- integrating trauma, suffering, and the hardcore tribulations of life into the natural course of existence. Ms. Landauer will speak to the powerful potential for positive growth hidden within the pain of living.
Medically Retired Sergeant (USMC) Jason Supple will then share his story of five tours of duty overseas that ultimately compelled him to leave his ‘old life’ behind and discover ways to create a ‘new’ life of meaning, purpose, and joy, amidst ongoing efforts to adapt to difficult, unremitting challenges. Two of his tours were combat tours in Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.
Jason and his family relocated to the Verde Valley in the summer of 2017. Jason is the proud owner of Ardent K9 Training LLC, which is a disabled Veteran owned business. He and his wife Kim offer an inspiring, life-affirming message.
