Carolyn Yoder, what a powerful and greatly needed website and resource for countless people across the planet today! In this day and age of amazing internet connection; the paradoxical disconnection to ourselves, each other and the environment remains a staggering short circuit in need of healing. In our evolutionary development where it was assumed that we were evolving up and out of medieval acts of barbarism and global technological weapons of mass destruction; we can sadly see that the roots of this type of mentality and the resulting trauma have not been reduced in a ‘modern’ world. Rather, the shape shifter of this type of pathology is alive and well today. And, we need deep understanding of the foundational patterns and resulting worldviews which allow for this type of pathology to be so resilient and thrive in this world today. Carolyn Yoder, by teaching us how to deal with trauma and recover from its all encompassing impact…you are helping to heal a world filled with people in need of concrete tools and understanding to deal with this storm of destruction; so that this pathology can be healed and not keep repeating itself. Bless you for your important life’s work.
Thank you, Teresa, for your encouraging comments.
I am pleased to see the STAR resources available on line. I am working with MCC in Nigeria and two of my friends have been lost family members in the violence perpetrated by Boko Haram and their lives have been deeply affected by this experience. I have spoken with them about STAR but there was no way they could access a STAR workshop and the trauma workshops offered by MCC Nigeria are not available to them. The have sent them the link to the on line resources and STAR course. Thank you so much for offering this opportunity for addressing trauma to people who cannot access a STAR workshop.
I found your site through your post on voting and I would love to serve as a counselor overseas or at the border someday (my undergrad is in Spanish). I currently am finishing my master’s in school counseling and am going on to get my LPC after that. Did you serve with any specific organization doing trauma work overseas? Thanks for your insight and your amazing post.
