Your mission is to impact lives. But trauma - such as abuse, neglect, poverty or community violence - may be getting in your way.
Whether you’re a teacher, case worker, police officer, healthcare provider, faith leader, administrator or executive – you and those around you are affected by life adversities. The lens through which you see and respond to others - and yourself - determines the impact you have. Does your lens foster curiosity about what happened? Is it compassionate or shaming? Does it open a new window for connection and healing?
When you intentionally address the impact of trauma, you can offer the promise of hope and a path to resilience.
