violence. The speakers are: * Patricia Fennell, MSW, LCSW-R, author of the validated, internationally used

involved with crime and violence. * They will be joined at the second event, on Nov. 12, by Gary Wright,
one of the Unabomber’s victims, who speaks frequently about recovering from
crime-associated trauma. The event will be held November 12 at Siena College in the Albany area. Tuition is $75 per day for
