Trauma is inevitable in a fallen world. It can range from small "t" traumas to capital "T" traumas, but the common thread is the violation of your dignity as a human being.
If trauma is inevitable, this means we are all encountering stories of trauma every day - in our own lives and in the lives of those around us.
So what are we to do when someone we love or care for is hurting? You might find yourself saying, "I'm so sorry to hear that," but often, it feels like you're not doing enough to truly help.
To make a real difference, we must begin by gaining a deeper understanding of the impact of trauma and abuse, starting with our own experiences.
If today's conversation strikes a chord with you and you're ready to explore your own trauma stories to better support others with courage and care, we invite you to check out the newly launched Effective Trauma Care Online Course.
