ChristianityNext: Trauma & Resilience: Neurobiology, Race, Faith

February 11, 2021

ChristianityNext Issue #5: “Trauma & Resilience: Neurobiology, Race, Faith” Winter 2021 is now available! Get your copy by donating to ISAAC at Vanco or contacting us at info@christianitynext.org.

ChristianityNext Winter 2021 devotes to featuring Trauma and Resilience in order to address the impact of the year 2020. Compounded by multiple pandemics, the year 2020 has inflicted trauma from the loss of more than 400,000 lives, jobs, basic needs of foods and shelter, and withering trust in democracy. Thus, in this issue, we seek to provide resources on navigating: trauma from transplants and dislocation, suicide, double minority identity, and anti-Asian American assaults.
