Working to make the world a more hopeful and sustainable place can mean having to confront trauma head-on, day in and day out. Over months and years this takes an enormous toll, one that we're often not even fully aware of until the day we feel like we just can't go on any more. And the work is too important to risk that happening.In Trauma Stewardship, Laura van Dernoot Lipsky, takes a deep and sympathetic look at the many ways the stress of dealing with trauma manifests itself, and offers a variety of simple and profound practices, drawn from modern psychology and a range of spiritual traditions, which enable us to look carefully at our reactions and motivations and discover new sources of energy and renewal. She includes interviews with successful trauma stewards from different walks of life and even uses New Yorker cartoons to playfully illustrate her points.
