Though there is a large number of scholars engaging in research on violence and trauma, there is a critical lack of methodological theorizing on how to do that work while prioritizing spiritual, mental, and emotional wellbeing. How do we survive research and academic work that has the potential to break us, in a system that does not value mental health? Especially the mental health of marginalized researchers? This article offers one perspective, namely the importance of shifting from trauma-based research to spirit-based research.
