The Seaford Public Library will be offering a community outreach program for those who were affected by Superstorm Sandy Tuesday evening.
The program, which is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m., will feature Dr. Robert Motta, who is Professor of Psychology and Director of the Doctoral Program in School-Community Psychology at Hofstra University. The topic of psychological trauma will be discussed, including an extensive overview of common signs and symptoms, as well as what can be done to help alleviate those distressing feelings.
“The library trustees recognized that there was more than just the physical damage when Hurricane Sandy rolled through Seaford,” said Peter Ruffner, president of the Seaford Public Library. “The emotional toll this superstorm caused was severe. Mental health is as important as physical health.”
For further information about the program, call 516-221-1334. The library is located on 2234 Jackson Ave.
“We truly hope this program will continue the process of assisting the people of Seaford recover from this hurricane,” Ruffner said. “We are pleased to coordinate this program with Hofstra University. Dr. Motta is a documented expert in this field.”
