Overcoming Childhood Pain Explored at Lifetree Café
How to heal from childhood trauma will be discussed at Lifetree Café on Wednesday, November 28, from 6:30-7:30pm.
The program, titled “Overcoming Childhood Pain: Facing Unresolved Family Issues,” features a filmed interview with Delisa Mayer, a woman whose family took part in an ill-fated university study during her childhood.
The outcome of that study - which introduced a newborn chimpanzee into the family and asked them to raise it as a human child - shaped Mayer’s childhood and led to her parents’ divorce.
“Our family was very torn up by this,” says Mayer. “It was a hard thing to live through, and it’s one of the reasons I don’t often tell this story.”
During the program participants will discover key steps to help recover from the scars of past experiences.
Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Lifetree Café is located at the Bachwell Center, 116 N. Washington Street, Van Wert, OH. Please enter on Court Street and park behind the Courthouse.
