Chris Beaudry, former Assistant Coach of the Humboldt Hockey Team, brings an inspiring and deeply personal narrative to the stage. He provides a firsthand account of the 2018 Humboldt Broncos bus crash, a tragic event that shook the core of the sporting world, resulting in the loss of sixteen lives and causing injury to thirteen others. This harrowing experience forms a backdrop to his discourse on trauma, resilience, and recovery.
Beaudry intertwines his own story with that of his mother’s struggle against addiction, creating a compelling narrative about the often-overlooked human aspects of addiction. He delves into the intricacies of fear patterns and the unconscious mechanisms that come into play during addiction, offering an insightful examination of how cognition can be more destabilizing than the addiction itself.
Drawing upon his experiences from the Humboldt accident, Beaudry provides an enlightening perspective on how his personal recovery program became a beacon of hope amidst the chaos, aiding him in navigating through the aftermath of the tragedy.
This talk is not merely a recounting of events, but an exploration of the human spirit’s capacity to overcome adversity and foster growth. The audience will be left with a deeper understanding of addiction and trauma, and the often-unseen strength that can emerge in the face of tragedy.
The presentation concludes with a reflective look at his current state of being, demonstrating the transformative power of resilience leaving the audience with an enduring message of hope and strength.
