From the Center for Mind-Body Medicine in Washington D.C., based on the groundbreaking work of Dr. James Gordon and team:
“Trauma comes to us all.
From war to domestic violence, from public health crises to climate- related disasters, from generational trauma to systemic racism— trauma is unavoidable.
When trauma comes and stress is overwhelming, it negatively affects our physiological
functions and contributes significantly to
major psychological and physical problems, including depression, anxiety, heart disease, cancer, immune disorders, pain syndromes, and substance misuse or substance use disorder.
Trauma also disrupts every aspect of our lives—our relationships, our workplaces, and communities, as well as our individual health. That’s why population-wide trauma is a public health issue.
Yet on the other side of trauma, there can be deeper understanding, greater wisdom, and more compassion.
Our mission is to help communities around the world develop the tools they need to heal population-wide trauma and build resilience. The results are often transformational.”
