Trauma Stewardship

In this talk, Laura van Dernoot Lipsky offers us a window into the cumulative toll that can occur when we are exposed to the suffering, hardship, crisis or trauma of humans, other living beings, or the planet itself. Held within a larger context of systematic oppression and liberation theory, this talk dives into what gets hard and how to work toward reconciling it both individually and collectively.
