How can we effectively address the threat of terrorism? What stops cycles of victimhood? What role can Restorative Justice play? This fully updated edition offers insightful answers. Endless wars, rising nationalism, polarizing othering, climate chaos, terrorism, racism, sexual violence, forced migration . . . the traumas of our world go beyond individual or one-time events. They are collective, ongoing, and the legacy of historical injustices. How do we stay awake rather than numbing or responding violently? How do we cultivate individual and collective courage and resilience? This Little Book provides a justice-and-conflict-informed community approach to addressing trauma in nonviolent, neurobiologically sound ways that interrupt cycles of violence and meet basic human needs for justice and security. In these pages, you'll find the core framework and tools of the internationally acclaimed Strategies for Trauma Awareness and Resilience (STAR) program developed at Eastern Mennonite University's Center for Justice and Peacebuilding in response to 9/11. A startlingly helpful approach.
