Each of us has the potential to be affected directly or indirectly by the suffering, hardship, crisis, or trauma experienced by other humans, living beings, or the planet itself.
People who hear about the ideas of trauma stewardship often become leaders in spreading the word. Every day I receive e-mails from people throughout the world describing the ways that they have applied the concepts of trauma stewardship to their lives.
The book has been used as a theme for conferences, staff retreats, book groups, study groups, and support groups. It has been translated. It has been the impetus behind workplace exercise programs and yoga classes. It has been passed along from coworker to coworker, friend to friend, and family member to family member.
If you would like to help move trauma stewardship out into the world, you might consider:
- Volunteering at existing events.
- Creating an event in your workplace, city or region.
- Hosting a book club.

Laura has a unique way of presenting difficult material. I know from 27 years on the job that people in law enforcement generally don’t see themselves as needing help and shy away from things that may be too touchy-feely. However, Laura is able to present about the cumulative toll of being exposed to overwhelm in a way that results in even the toughest naysayers viewing things differently.
