    Contact: Virginia Bennett, Community Resource Director, 631-702-2423,
    Eric Arauz is a renowned Life Transformation speaker and the award-winning author of his life story, “An American Resurrection.” Eric’s talk will use art, science, literature, and personal narrative to travel with the audience through his “unbelievable but not unlivable” life’s journey. This journey took him from near lethal child abuse and numerous psychiatric hospitalizations to a medical school faculty appointment, multiple national advocacy awards, and creating the first statewide trauma training for all child welfare workers in New Jersey. Eric has survived his mental illness and has used his experience to assist others. “I’m not successful in spite of my mental illness, I am successful because of it.”
