When Helping Hurts Workshop


Spiritual Trauma & Networking Workshop for Animal Welfare Professionals and Rescuers

The Body Remembers
The body remembers everything. Sounds, smells, touches, tastes. But the memory is not held in your mind, locked somewhere in the recesses of your brain. Instead, it’s held in your body, all the way down at the cellular level. Our cells store memories about our experiences, habits, sensations—everything. Our bodies hold the stories of our experiences until they are witnessed.

This one day workshop will give you reality-based response and coping strategies that can be applied on the frontline to help human rescuers and the moral injury they face in the difficult work they do, while continuing to support innocent animals in need.
