Featuring: Academy Award Winning Filmmaker
Topic: "Strong at the Broken Places" renown documentary filmmaker Margaret Lazarus produced and directed along with Renner Wunderlich.

At our regularly scheduled monthly “Speaker” meeting on Thursday evening, September 28, at 7:00pm, renown documentary filmmaker Margaret Lazarus will screen her 38 minute film:  “Strong at the Broken Places” which she produced and directed along with Renner Wunderlich. The film deals with how people who’ve experienced life altering trauma can find a way forward towards a life of resilience and recovery.  Following the screening, she will also describe how she came to make the film. Local psychiatrist Pam Reeves, MD, former Cambridge Hospital/Harvard Med. School Residency Dir. and Primary Psychiatrist for the “Victims of Violence” program will discuss   current treatments and modalities for helping victims achieve healthy growth and development after trauma.  Since the majority of people living with serious mental health disorders have experienced significant trauma, this program is a “must see” for anyone who’s experienced such trauma as well as their families.
