After experiencing a childhood brain injury at age eight, Emily was partially paralyzed on the left side of her body. In recovering from her injury, she rebuilt her body, re-learning to walk with two legs of different lengths and fully function with one arm and hand.
As a teenager and young adult, Emily moved through the world, largely ignoring her body and physical disability. In 2019 Emily started a healing journey to improve her physical, spiritual, and emotional bodies. In this session, she will present the individual resilience and healing strategies she learned in the past few years that have helped her become a more authentic and successful person.
Participants will walk away from this interactive 75-minute virtual session with concrete individual physical, emotional, and mental resilience strategies that work and can be applied immediately, as well as empathy and understanding for employee or stakeholder populations working through physical disability.
This workshop is appropriate for all levels and abilities. Participants will engage in group polls, journaling activities, discussions, and Q&A. No previous knowledge is needed.
