Dr. Nancy Good Sider from Eastern Mennonite University is here at Atlantic Bridge for a few days between assignments in Rwanda and Bosnia. She is Associate Professor of Trauma & Conflict Studies at EMU where she lectures on healing and resolution. She also actively works in field locations where people have experienced significant trauma and are seeking to sort out the resulting personal and social issues.
The interview took place this morning in the downstairs café of De Vierslag. We discuss her personal and professional background, her methodologies in trauma healing, and the challenges and rewards faced by practitioners in the field.
The EMU Center for Justice and Peacebuilding can be found here.
