The number of people impacted by global conflict, abuse, and violence is estimated to be in excess of one billion.  There is no reason to think that this number is diminishing.  There is clear evidence to support the idea that this number is, in fact, increasing.  

Even if all conflict and violence stopped today, because of the legacy of generational trauma, numbers would still increase. It is entirely likely that on any given day more trauma is experienced than is resolved.  So, we are, in fact, moving backwards as we reach forwards in our desire to help.  We have been doing so for a very long time. There is not, and will never be, a sufficient number of helping professionals to address and resolve the outcomes of trauma experienced globally.
