Prince George, B.C. –  “There is one part of my healing that is taking place right now” said  Kamal Dhillon as  she took the stage at the Healing through learning conference in Prince George.

She is one of the keynote speakers at the three day  event  at the Prince George Civic Centre  which  has brought together  front line  responders,  counsellors, social workers, court workers,  to  learn how  to best  work with  victims of crime, trauma and  abuse.

Dhillon  has suffered through  domestic violence,  saying “My husband’s mission was  to  kill me,  I made it my secret mission  to live.”  She  says her story, which detailed  the 12 years  she suffered at the hands of her husband,  suffering “every kind of abuse imaginable” is an effort to share the message “There is hope in one’s darkest hour”.

“We likely have the largest cross section of experts in the Province right now” noted Prince George RCMP Detachment Superintendent Warren Brown  as he surveyed the room ” That’s a tremendous amount of horsepower.”

“With the knowledge, skills and abilities you folks have,   and coming together, we have  no silos, we have no walls,  and what I like most about this is we can learn from each other  we’ll  build new relationships,  strengthen relationship” said Brown.   He says it also  gave him  pause to  reflect on why he started  on his own career path  “it  provides an opportunity to  refuel our passions.”
