Unfortunately, every congregation is impacted at some time, in some way, by traumatic events, either directly or indirectly. In order to respond promptly and appropriately, religious and lay leaders need training. The Institute on Congregational Trauma and Growth (ICTG) offers online training, coaching and spiritual direction for leaders, {{articles |}}, {{films |}}, {{books |}}, and the {{ICTG blog |}}. Field experts outline best practices and the latest research in the areas of trauma and healing. Two of many other resources offered by ICTG include denominational relief organizations and disaster relief preparedness training for houses of worship. These resources are outstanding for clergy and congregations who wish to become a trauma-informed community.
