Keynote Speaker is announced!


HHN is pleased to announce Laura van Dernoot Lipsky will be the keynote speaker at our upcoming conference in Denver, CO. In addition to a program that will include workshops in five topical areas with both beginning and advanced level content, the conference will kick-off with the author and accomplished speaker.

Laura's work at The Trauma Stewardship Institute has been featured at the first Ted Talk to be held inside a women's correctional facility, the New York Times Sunday Book Review, and she has worked locally, nationally, and internationally for more than three decades. Read her full biography here

Laura makes a superb case for “trauma stewardship” as an approach that will benefit all of us in the service community who must deal with the struggles of our work with a hurting world. Her real-life stories hit home and clearly illustrate the ways that the traumatic situations we experience at work can carry over into our personal view of our world. Laura helps us understand our own responses to trauma and provides a path of renewal. Her book offers tools to bring us back to a place of balance where we can be more effective in our work, more present with our families, and most importantly, more at peace in our own soul.

Michael L. Tuggy, M.D., Director of the Swedish Family Medicine Residency Program (Seattle, WA)


A special message from your Event Committee Chair, Debbie Fraley

Don't miss this one! HHN Conference is always a great way to meet your peers, share stories, and get ideas and inspiration. 

Remember those times when you meet someone who just gets what you do? The joys, the sorrows, the aggravations? You'll be encouraged and uplifted by Laura, and will feel healing begin that you maybe didn't even know that you needed. 

Helping others requires a refilling of the well and this keynote will put you on the way towards doing that. Please come and be a part of it with us. 

- Debbie Fraley, Housing and Family Assistance Coordinator, Seattle Cancer Care Alliance
