“A Small World: Building Resiliency and Hope after Childhood Trauma”

Tuesday, February 28, at 5:00 pm Pacific / 7:00 pm Central / 8:00 pm Eastern

Webinar description

Nearly half of all children have experienced a traumatic event in their lives. These experiences have the potential of altering the ways children view the world and themselves, and these impacts can last well into adulthood. However, this is not the end of the story. Communities and supports can and do provide care that can shift outcomes and change lives. In this presentation, we will define trauma and its effects and learn resources and ways of being to build resilience and hope.


Jon-Erik (J.E.) Misz, MDiv, LCSW. J.E. lives in Goshen, Indiana, where he works as a licensed clinical social worker and clinical supervisor in a community mental health center. He holds a Master of Social Work from the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill and a Master of Divinity from Duke University. Integrating his interests in mental health, faith, and spoken word poetry, he has led discussions both locally and nationally on subjects such as trauma-informed care, anxiety and depression, and adolescent mental health. He is currently serving as secretary for the ADN Board of Directors.

Drone war, tech assassinations, and the future of conflict: Theological, legal, and policy developments  

December 13th 12:00 EST

From the first fully autonomous deadly targeting in Libya to “kamikaze” drone attacks on civilian infrastructure in Ukraine and “Over the horizon” capability in Afghanistan, the use of lethal drones is expanding with little restraint. The technology and availability of lethal drones continue to quickly expand and are outpacing ethical and policy reflection and restraints.

In the previous webinar, the Interfaith Working Group on Drone Warfare focused on the human costs of drone strikes, both in the targeted communities and to the operators. In this discussion we will explore the expansion of drones use due to weapons sales and technology transfers as well as the technological advances in AI and use of lethal force via drones as well as ethical and policy considerations that these raise.

 For example, how does the ease of use of deadly force change and challenge theological and ethical frameworks for evaluating justness? And, how must humans stay “in the loop” on moral questions of such gravity? The expansion of availability and lethality highlight the need for more robust and sustained theological ethical analysis of our assumptions of war, violence, and targeting.
