Healing Through Learning – Conference Underway
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.”
