Mercy Medical Center is holding a free lecture on “Emotional First Aid After Disaster Strikes” at the Freeport Memorial Library on Dec. 3 at 7:30 p.m.
The hour-long presentation will be given by Dr. David Flomenhaft, Director of Mercy’s Outpatient Behavioral Healthcare Services. Flomenhaft is a licensed clinical social worker with a doctoral degree in clinical social work from New York University and nearly three decades of professional experience.
The aftermath of Hurricane Sandy and the nor’easter that followed included as much emotional as physical damage. This presentation will discuss how to cope with the wide range of intense, confusing, and sometimes frightening feelings that result from natural disasters.
There is no charge for attending the presentation. Advance registration is recommended but is not required to attend.
The Freeport Memorial Library is located at 144 Merrick Road. For registration, travel directions and information, call the Library Reference Desk at 516-379-3274 ext. 505 or by e-mail at: firstname.lastname@example.org
