S3E10 – Rural Trauma

This episode of Rural Routes features Dr. Kathleen Kevany from the Faculty of Agriculture at Dalhousie University in Truro, Nova Scotia. She is the director of the Rural Research Collaborative and a licensed psychotherapist who studies community development, community well-being and social change. We reached out to Dr. Kevany in the aftermath of a mass shooting in rural Nova Scotia to help us understand the impacts such traumatic events have on rural regions and communities and what we can do to help us get through such difficult events. Dr. Kevany also shared some of the resources available to rural communities and especially those affected by the recent events.
