Conference Presenter Preview: Eric Arauz

leave a comment »

Eric Arauz is a father, a veteran and a keynote speaker. Eric has also been diagnosed with Bipolar 1, PTSD, alcohol and drug addiction and was confined in a Veterans Administration maximum security mental institution as a disabled Navy veteran from Operation Desert Shield. Eric has experienced nearly everything negative life can throw your way. Yet, Eric has taken what he has dealt with and is now using it to help others.

On day two of ATSS’ 2010 conference (Friday October 1, 2010) — Safely in Our Hands:  Helping Our Helpers Stay Healthy — Eric will be presenting “Death and Resurrection of a Veteran with Mental Illness.”

I could do my best and try to explain the nature of Eric’s presentation in my own words, but until you hear it from him, in his own words, you can’t really grasp his total resurrection.

For those of you who will not be attending this year’s conference, I suggest you check out As soon as you log onto his site, you will be greeted by a video titled, “Miraculous Story of Death and Resurrection Part 1.” This video is just a taste of what conference delegates can expect while attending Eric’s workshop. I encourage you to watch his video, send him an email or maybe even ask him to speak at your next conference or event.
