Reunion Issue No. 2

Thank you for taking a look at the second installment of our magazine, Reunion. In this issue, we direct our focus to this community of individuals who have dedicated themselves to being of service to others. We call them healers. It is a diverse group—from elected officials, medical professionals and members of law enforcement to educators, wellness practitioners and therapists; from the advocates who have dedicated their lives to this cause to the members of the media who will choose the words that will elevate our message. Each of us is vital in realizing the vision of what we can be together.

We invite you to read on to learn more about how members of our healing community address, prevent and mitigate viarious trauma. Read their stories, discover new practices for wellness and self-care and learn even more about vicarious trauma.
