Dr. Sonia Cancian (Ph.D., Concordia University) gives women a voice through letter writing workshops offered at the Centre in French, English and Italian.
The aim of these workshops is to encourage expression through writing in a serene and friendly atmosphere through methodologies that include self-expression and self-writing. Throughout the letter writing workshops, we discuss women’s life experiences, difficulties, joys, challenges, tenacity, and resilience. Whether writing about a current event or an event in the past, this workshop has a therapeutic dimension that draws on affects and emotions.

Conference on bereavement with Therapist Michel Trozzo.

“Life is born of encounters, and life is the first celebration and suffering that everyone carries within themselves”.
“Everything that begins must end, will end. Death is a final and irreversible suffering. When death arrives, our life is essentially sensitive, and the therapist Michel Trozzo, explains to us how to live his journey with mourning and what the effects will produce emotionally in our life.
We should live like we shouldn’t die because you’re not supposed to die.”
