Trauma Stewardship Training

March 23, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

This interactive training and discussion will offer practical tools to help us sustain, individually and collectively, in the face of trauma, secondary trauma and when overwhelmed. Whether this is related to our work, our personal lives, the pandemic, systematic oppression and structural supremacy surfacing in exceedingly painful ways, or the unfolding of the climate crisis, we will discuss what the consequences are as well as strategies for sustaining ourselves and each other.

  • Setting the Context for Cumulative Toll: We will discuss the context for how a cumulative toll arises and how we’ll engage in this conversation. We’ll discuss some principles that may be helpful in taking in the information.
  • The Trauma Exposure Response: These are the specific manifestations of cumulative toll. From numbing to anger to cynicism we’ll dive deeply into how one is impacted individually and collectively.
  • How to Sustain Individually: We’ll look at very concrete strategies for how to create sustainability for oneself individually.
  • How to Sustain Collectively: We’ll broaden the conversation by looking at how to create sustainability for oneself within a larger context as well as how to create larger organizational, institutional, and movement-level change.
