Healing After Mass Victimization: The Power of Collaboration

2019 marks the 30th anniversary of the mass shooting at the École Polytechnique in Montreal, which shocked Canadians. This half-day conference will focus on multi-disciplinary responses and the power of collaboration in order to meet the needs of victims of mass violence. Victim-centred reparative justice focuses on the needs, perceptions and dignity of victims in order to promote healing. It requires that all actors, legal, medical, and social, work together to assist victims in their healing process.  Nowhere is the importance of cross-sector collaboration more evident than in the case of mass victimization, where the plethora of victims' needs may seem insurmountable.
