Global Collective Trauma Prevention – the New Project

April 24, 2020

Global Collective Trauma Prevention – the New Project

Our new project has been in existence for two weeks. It has started well and is gratefully accepted. It is an offer of support for people who are burdened by this pandemic crisis through stress, fear and strong inner processes. We offer moderated online groups via video conferencing (in English, German and Spanish). There is the possibility to share experiences in a safe space, to listen to each other in presence, to become part of a supporting group field, and to enter into a common integrating learning process.

There are separate groups for people in the nursing, healthcare and medical professions, who in many places are now particularly burdened and challenged.
The groups are led by people from all over the world who are all connected to the Pocket Project for Collective and Intergenerational Trauma Integration. The team has grown to 61 people. Each of the volunteers have graciously offered their expertise in supporting groups and individuals. Thomas is leading this team. There are open groups almost every day – registration is free of charge.

Healing Collective Trauma – Talks at Harvard by Thomas Hübl

Thomas Hübl gave talks at Harvard Medical School and Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging, in Boston, Massachusetts, USA, in December 2019.

“One of the major elements of healing is relation. In healing relation, I create like a kind of relational warmth and generosity that allows people to really drop in and be partners in the conversation about their health. I think it’s a prerequisite if I work in a healthcare profession to have a certain level of ‘response-ability’ because when I’m reactive I’m not responding, I’m reacting.”

Discussing the importance of a support system for healthcare providers, Thomas shared his insights on how to bring the fragmented parts of ourselves and our systems into deeper integration. On this rainy day in early December, approximately 80 students, staff, and faculty came out to attend a talk at Harvard Medical School with Thomas and Dr. Bala Subramaniam, an associate professor of medicine and director of the Center for Anesthesia Research Excellence at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston.Read More
