Book News Annotation:

Veteran trauma social worker and educator Lipsky shares with other trauma workers what she has learned from her own experience and that of others, about how the work affects the worker, the signs and symptoms that there is trouble on the way, and approaches both to dealing with acute or imminent problems and to reducing the risk of problems as they go along. She discusses such aspects as the three levels of trauma stewardship, the 16 warning signs of trauma exposure response, new ways to navigate, and following the five directions. The fifth direction is centering. Burk is an anti-violence activist. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Laura van Dernoot Lipsky takes a deep and empathetic look at the many ways the stress of dealing with other's trauma or suffering manifests itself: feelings of helplessness and hopelessness, diminished creativity, chronic exhaustion, cynicism, and a dozen more. To keep from being overwhelmed, we need to respond to this toll in a thoughtful, intentional way--not by hardening our hearts or by internalizing others' struggles as our own but by developing a quality of compassionate presence. This is trauma stewardship. To help achieve this, Lipsky offers a variety of simple and profound practices, drawn from modern psychology and ancient cultural traditions, that enable us to look carefully at our ourselves, our organizations, and our society and discover new sources of energy and renewal.

Synopsis:

A longtime trauma worker, Laura van Dernoot Lipsky offers a deep and empathetic survey of the often-unrecognized toll on those working to make the world a better place. We may feel tired, cynical, numb, or like we can never do enough. These, and other symptoms, affect us individually and collectively, sapping the energy and effectiveness we so desperately need if we are to benefit humankind, other animals, and the planet itself. Through Trauma Stewardship, we are called to meet these challenges in an intentional way--not by becoming overwhelmed but by developing a quality of mindful presence. Joining the wisdom of ancient cultural traditions with modern psychological research, Lipsky offers a variety of simple and profound practices that will allow us to remake ourselves--and ultimately the world.
