Please join us for Main Line NAMI Forum: Expanding our Understanding of Trauma and Trauma Recovery with Edie Mannion, LMFT, on Sunday, November 14, from 2-4 p.m. on Zoom. The forums and workshops NAMI Main Line PA presents are informed by the needs and requests of our community, and so is the case with this requested follow-up to the forum, The Basics of Trauma and Trauma Recovery. Edie Mannion, LMFT, from the DBT Center of Greater Philadelphia, will provide, as she did earlier in the fall, a framework to explore and expand our understanding of trauma, trauma treatments and trauma recovery. On Nov. 14th, she will briefly review what she presented in the September webinar, then build on that framework for understanding trauma, trauma disorders, trauma treatments and trauma recovery by addressing questions and encouraging discussion.  Upon registering, you will receive the slides from her previous webinar, which we ask you to review, and then submit your questions or comments to Your input will guide the discussion. This event is free, but advance registration is required at We will open the meeting early to admit participants so that we can begin promptly at 2 p.m. For more information, please contact us at
