Coping with Stress: A presentation of Amy’s Story: Grow Education Series

26 Jan, 2022

Grow Education Series

Through Amy’s story, Michelle Hrynyk will guide us through ways to cope with stress.  

Amy’s Story is a universal story that weaves traditional Anishinaabe culture, spirituality, and symbolism with the neuroscience of threat response. It helps bridge the gap of scientific language and technical details through an easy-to-follow story line, unforgettable characters, and thought-provoking facts.  

Michelle Hrynyk, MSW, RSW, specializes in trauma recovery using Brainspotting and a spiritual/holistic approach. She has over 20 years experience working with Anishinaabe people, is a certified Brainspotting practitioner, and the author of Amy’s Story.  

Amy’s Story helped me understand the parts of the brain, aka” the four sisters” and the role they each play in the regulation process. This information is valuable and can deepen people’s capacity to understand their own process and more easily participate in their healing”.  

Debora Farrington Certified Brainspotting practitioner  

Who should attend?
