Carolyn Yoder, coordinator of the STAR Program, said the first group "bonded well" and brought a host of experiences that coincided well with STAR?s goals; she said among the most important skills learned may be those of helping develop dialogues within congregations and communities."There is a way to discuss critical issues that?s not divisive," she said."Many feel that their voices are being stifled and in a ?dialogue format? you can give voice to everybody who wants to be heard."

"That?s what?s most exciting to me - to allow all voices to be heard," she said."In a national crisis, that in itself is a type of trauma healing."
In addition to CWS and EMU's Conflict Transformation Program, STAR's sponsors include the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), Lutheran Disaster Response, Presbyterian Disaster Assistance, United Church of Christ, American Baptist Churches in the U.S.A., Church of the Brethren, Mennonite Disaster Service and Reformed Church in America.

...
They end up with a small but mighty peace-building effort that is spreading across the globe, said Carolyn Yoder, director of Seminars in Trauma Awareness and Recovery (STAR) at Eastern Mennonite University in Harrisonburg, Va.
...
By taking their ideas back home and spreading them, said Yoder.
...
An upcoming STAR week in December will be offered only in Spanish, said Yoder.
So far the U.S.-based STAR participants have been mainly clergy and laypersons from New York and New Jersey, she said.
CWS has also conducted shorter programs -- modeled after STAR -- in New York City for on-the-scene caregivers there.
The ultimate goal for STAR participants is to take what they've learned back to the local level, said Yoder.
...
"The instinctual brain wants revenge," said Yoder, alluding to many people's reactions immediately after 9/11.
...
Whether they draw together through music or spiritual reflection, by looking closely at anger, people can eventually examine the roots of violence, explained Yoder.
...
"When trauma happens you flail around," said Yoder.


Disaster News Network: Healing continues 2 years later

Carolyn Yoder, a professor at EMU, who teaches in some of the weeklong peace-building sessions, said that interest has picked up since the commencement of the war in Iraq, and hasn't flagged since then.

Part of the program's appeal, she said, is the blending of both personal and societal response "to breaking the cycle of violence."
On the one hand, participants - both clergy and secular community leaders - are asked to share specific symbols of trauma.
"One woman brought her husband's glasses," Yoder said.
...
Another reason interest may have increased since the beginning of the Iraq war, Yoder thinks, may be the resurgence of uncertainty and fear provoked by the war.
"What I'm noticing is an increase in general fatigue levels - a sense of fear and anxiety - we've really seen that go up - and a sense of discouragement," she said.
