Speaker(s): Nelba L. Marquez-Greene, MA; Michael L. Chafin, MEd
In what has become an all too frequent occurrence, December 14, 2012 was a day rocked by violence as 20 elementary school students and 6 adult staff members lost their lives in the deadliest school shooting in U.S. history. One of those children lost was 6-year old Ana, daughter of AAMFT Clinical Fellow Nelba Márquez-Greene. In the ensuing two and a half years, her life re-shaped by the tragic events, Ms. Márquez-Greene has been driven by her family motto “love wins” and a desire to ensure her daughter’s life is remembered twice as loudly as her death. Her journey has led her to every level of government, media, and the public to increase understanding and awareness to prevent violence and promote healing. Join us as AAMFT Past President Michael Chafin speaks with Nelba about her journey and ways she believes all mental health professionals can work to help prevent future tragedies.
