NDIN Tip Sheet: Faith Communities & Trauma Resilience

The way you as a religious leader interpret events and frame critical incidents can
either help individuals and groups heal, or further inflame situations by keeping
individuals and groups stuck in unending cycles of victimhood and/or violence.
You can help reduce actions and attitudes of backlash, revenge, victimhood, and
other personal, social, and spiritual maladies before, during, and after disaster.
