Naming the Pain: A Lenten reflection on transforming the wounds of war, ​Carolyn Holderread Heggen, AMBS Chapel, February 28, 2012

Presentation: “The Trauma of War and our Collective Responsibility” (also highlighted in Lesson 5) is a good way to acknowledge that the trauma of war is not a pain to be borne by soldiers alone; rather, it is a burden created and shared by everyone. This is an important concept and helpful bridge-builder between veterans and non-veterans.

The Soul Repair Project:includes veterans’ testimonies, study guides and articles on veterans’experiences, moral injury and the role of congregations. 

Strategies for TraumaAwareness and Resilience (STAR): STAR is a research-supported trauma awareness and resilience training program that began in 2001. STAR brings together theory and practices from neurobiology, conflict transformation, human security, spirituality, and restorative justice to address the needs of trauma-impacted individuals and communities. 

STAR: Journey Homefrom War: a training program using the STAR model, focused on military veterans and their return to civilian life.
