The Responders Journey
All responders enter situations where there has been injury or wounding or worse, damage or destruction, and they do so without knowing what to expect or what unmet needs they will face. Disaster, massacre and emergency all imply trauma, and it is impossible to witness trauma or assist in the response of trauma without experiencing the impact of others' trauma ourselves. Just as we cannot paint without splattering some paint on ourselves and we cannot dig in the garden without getting dirty, we cannot attend to trauma and trauma's victims without experiencing some impact of the trauma.


This experiential program is designed to provide an emotionally safe setting and programmatic structure to help responders of all professions begin or revisit their own journey of healing following the horrible events that occurred at The Tree of Life synagogue. We do not always recognize the impact that witnessing trauma has on us; however, often the people close to us do. While there will be no requirements to actively participate, there will be opportunities to tell our stories, to witness others' stories, and to learn about the signs and symptoms of trauma's impact, opportunities we have to manage this impact, and of the multiple levels of doing the work of healing.
