April 17: Trauma Stewardship Book Discussion

Mar 13, 2018 — Categories:

Join us on April 17 for the latest Meaningful Voices Book Club discussion of Trauma Stewardship: An Everyday Guide to Caring for Self While Caring for Others.

As essential book for anyone in the "helping professions." Trauma Stewardship addresses the impact that secondary (vicarious) trauma has on those whose work or calling involves caring for those who are suffering.

A longtime trauma worker, Laura van Dernoot Lipsky offers a deep and empathetic survey of the often-unrecognized toll taken on those working to make the world a better place. We may feel tired, cynical, or numb or like we can never do enough. These, and other symptoms, affect us individually and collectively, sapping the energy and effectiveness we so desperately need if we are to benefit humankind, other living things, and the planet itself. In Trauma Stewardship, we are called to meet these challenges in an intentional way—to keep from becoming overwhelmed by developing a quality of mindful presence. Joining the wisdom of ancient cultural traditions with modern psychological research, Lipsky offers a variety of simple and profound practices that will allow us to remake ourselves—and ultimately the world.

Join us online on April 17 to discuss Trauma Stewardship! Registration information to come. Participants include Dr. Sally MacNichol of CONNECT and Emily Cohen, MDiv., of FaithTrust Institute.
