Healing the Healers

 

Who do we turn to when tragedy strikes? Faith leaders are the ones that we usually call upon when a tragedy or mass trauma strikes. They guide us, and our communities, toward healing and restoration.

 

But who heals the healers?

 

Healing the Healers
Healing the Healers is a new media resource where clergy, laity, social workers, first responders and other spiritual care providers facing community-level trauma can go for support. The five-part film series features a church pastor leading an important conversation with other faith leaders. All have ministered to their communities after a mass trauma or during ongoing community problems. The pastors who have been working in the trenches provide help and support for others going through similar things.

 

Check out the Healing the Healers trailer:

 

 

You can view trailers for each episode on the website.

The 5 part series is available for purchase on the website as a dvd set that includes license rights to screen the series in a group setting with pastors, and other leaders. The set also includes a discussion guide that includes written reflections by scholars, clergy and other experts.

 

I love that the website has emergency phone numbers that congregation leaders can use for immediate support.

 

If you, as a leader of your congregation, are experiencing a personal emergency or mental health crisis, call —, the disaster distress helpline(——–), or the national suicide prevention lifeline (———) for immediate assistance. If you are experiencing vocational distress, contact representatives at ——, by emailing ——, or by calling ——-, to receive personal care or coaching.

Our pastors, and other leaders, go above and beyond on a daily basis for all of us. It’s about time they had someplace to turn for help. I have viewed some of these and this series looks to me like it will really help our leaders to heal so they can continue to be there to help their churches, and communities with our many needs. The pastors who have been working in the trenches provide help and support for others going through similar things.
