Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.

Topic: The Post Traumatic Growth Perspective: Understanding the culture of individuals with complex needs and their families. Date presented: Tuesday, Jan. 7.
