A longtime trauma worker, Laura van Dernoot Lipsky offers a deep and empathetic survey of the often-unrecognized toll taken on those working to make the world a better place. We may feel tired, cynical, or 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 living things, and the planet itself. In Trauma Stewardship, we are called to meet these challenges in an intentional way-to keep from becoming overwhelmed 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.

I had the opportunity to listen to the author speak and was very impressed with (1) her ability to identify the very subtle and specific things service workers do to cope with the stress of helping others that are actually destructive rather than helpful, and (2) the concrete and practical tips she offers for getting out of this difficult frame of mind and body.
