My name is Dr. Stephanie Arel. I write and teach about internal obstacles that get in the way of self-growth. I believe that self-reflection, through self-examination, helps people help themselves and, in turn, help others. I am committed to providing tools and methods of caring for the self to support those engaged in caring for others. Strengthening the self leads to healthier living, better relationships, and flourishing communities.
I am a trained consultant for both mental and physical trauma. My books and projects revolve around topics related to these.
In 2016, Palgrave Macmillan published my book Affect Theory, Shame, and Christian Formation. I am also a coeditor of Post-Traumatic Public Theology.
I work with institutions all around the world that are established out of trauma, such as memorials and museums that involve mass trauma. To help trainees understand the dynamics of what happens to people every day, I hold training and public speaking events.
