The cost of post-conflict resolution work for practitioners

In December, PCRC will work with Dr. Stephanie Arel, an Andrew W. Mellon Fellow at the September 11 Memorial and Museum to organize an experiential workshop for those engaged in processes of post-conflict resolution and recovery after communal and individual trauma. This workshop aims to establish deeper connections between those involved in this work, by exploring methods of self-care, and attempting to understand the mechanisms behind the empathy demanded for such work. This is the first workshop of this kind in BiH and in 2019, we will continue to work with Dr. Arel to build skills for responding to emotionally charged or distressing material by establishing a network alongside resources for people doing such work.
