Meredith College alumna Susan Montgomery, ’69, will present “Healing Trauma in South Sudan,” a public talk about her work, on Wednesday, Sept. 18 at 7:30 p.m. in Kresge Auditorium.
Constant violence in South Sudan brings trauma to thousands and leaves women vulnerable to abuse and especially to rape. With an advanced degree in clinical psychology and special training in therapy for trauma victims, especially women, Montgomery has worked for several years to help people heal.
Montgomery, who studied history at Meredith, holds a doctorate in psychology from the University of Tennessee, and has a private practice in Knoxville, Tenn. Since 2015, she has served as a psychological consultant in Juba, South Sudan, through Viable Support for Transitions and Stability (VISTAS) – a USAID project.
Sponsored by the School of Arts & Humanities, this event is free and open to the public.
