As Nancy Good Sider writes, peacebuilders deal with trauma regularly in their work. They must understand trauma and trauma healing to do their work in assisting others and in dealing with the effects on themselves of the trauma they see in others. Hence, Sider describes trauma and provides a “mapâ€? of trauma healing so that peacebuilders can recognize trauma and help to heal it in others and in themselves.
