Trust, Trauma, and Transformation | A Radically Different Response to Harm

Community decision-making and peacebuilding efforts around the globe have been and continue to be affected by trauma thus necessitating a trauma-informed approach to conflict resolution, breaking recurrent cycles of violence, and fostering the trust and collaboration required for sustainable project outcomes and stable societies. Trauma may result from people’s actions or natural disasters, causing neurological changes that spontaneously overwhelm rational thoughts as much as decades later. The impact of traumatic experiences may also be passed to future generations who were not directly exposed. Such collective trauma can affect large swaths of society; it manifests differently, can harden into a divided, volatile state, and requires a complex response. To do no harm, peacebuilders have an ethical responsibility to be alert to the possibility of trauma exposure and adapt interventions to address its effects.
