Collective Trauma and Collective Healing

Contemplative Practice


Read the 1-page document by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) related to collective trauma. 

The “How Can I Help?” section offers five ways to support others struggling from a traumatic event. Think of one person in your life who might be living through or recovering from a collectively traumatic event. 

Practice out loud how you would offer these five ways to support them. If possible, reach out to this person, offer a compassionate ear, and help them to the extent that they allow and that you can provide.

Time to Complete: 4-5 minutes
