Many of us want to help but it is important not to let our own feelings overwhelm us and guide our actions. After any traumatic event, we need a period of calming down before action is taken in order to first understand and evaluate; for the record I am not talking from a government or security perspective, I speak as a practitioner and someone with an interest in the mind and the internalized ripple effects.
When a traumatic event happens, including the youth murders we deal with too frequently in our communities, we hear the word trauma thrown about and want to work straight away to put interventions in place. Rather than rushing to get involved and do something, part of the solution is taking time to think things through and become proactive, rather than reactive, which is extremely hard when working in crisis.
However, working in crisis all the time has become part of our problem, at least when violence is concerned.
This is, I believe, part of the impulse that Caroline Garland is describing in the above text. After a traumatic event, those who were apart of the event will all experience a range of different emotions, it is part of our job, as practitioners, to help contain these emotions this is why clinical supervision is important — see last blog because we will not begin to see the full effects of the traumatic event until weeks or months later.
Some people will be able to work through the experience, some will experience symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder PTSD for a few months, which will then begin to go away on their own. Others will develop PTSD or another diagnosis and will need therapy or a version of clinical support.

Some will be okay for a very long time and experience breakdown in what seems like a completely unrelated event years down the line. The important thing is to understand that a traumatic event will effect everyone in a different way and that, the majority of the time, we do not know if a person is traumatised until time has passed.
Now yes I know, there are interventions around rapid eye movement and others that I probably have no clue about, that are said to prevent an individual being traumatised if put into action straight after an event. From my understanding and experience in regards to trauma, it is only when time has passed can the real internal work begin.

The aim of this piece of writing is to start get us the community members, the front line workers and the practitioners thinking about trauma because there are so many of us that struggle with feelings of helplessness when such devastating events happen, which is what often drives us into action.
It is hard to feel helpless, frustrated and restless but it is also important to understand these feelings and not just react to them. If you want to help create peace, we need to find balance between action and thinking, my belief is true action requires thinking through.
Solutions require observation, analysis and participation before strategies can be developed. So today I say the same to you as I say each week to my students, if you want to help with long-term solutions rather than reacting to crisis, learn to sit with your feelings.
