There may be a misperception about what it means to witness trauma. In particular this may be confusing when the source of the trauma is not an event, but is rooted in childhood.⠀⠀
⠀⠀
In the latter case, helpers (unpaid/paid) may hear stories of what happened, which can be traumatizing. However the supporters are also exposed to the adaptations or coping mechanisms, which developed as a result of the original source. Repeated exposure to these trauma-based responses may also be a source of secondary trauma.⠀⠀
⠀⠀
Two short definitions:⠀⠀
⠀⠀
Coping mechanism is an adaptation to the original traumas. For children who grow up in homes of neglect, abuse, parents with their own developmental trauma, intergenerational trauma, there are be behaviours, responses, and neurobiological changes.⠀⠀
⠀⠀
Secondary traumatic stress (which may be vicarious trauma) occurs as a result of exposure to another’s trauma, which in this post is witnessing adaptations.⠀⠀
⠀⠀
What adaptations can be a source of secondary trauma? Not an exhaustive list, but examples might include:⠀⠀
⠀⠀
- Seeing someone repeatedly choose unhealthy relationships.⠀⠀
- Watching a loved one not care for themself.⠀⠀
- Observing someone engaged in lifestyle choices that are not optimal (workaholism, difficulty setting boundaries, misuse of substances, missing therapy appointments, financial mismanagement, etc).⠀⠀
⠀⠀
Obviously, there is much to be added. However, I want to highlight that observation of trauma is not solely about witnessing an event. It’s about exposure to the trauma-based adaptations.⠀⠀
⠀⠀
To close, if you are a supporter of someone with a childhood trauma history, I want to validate you. I want to acknowledge your experiences and your pain. As a partner to a survivor, I see you and I understand.

This is from an interview with @russellbrand for Recovery Today Magazine, and it's so so good. If I could shout this from a rooftop with a megaphone I would.
These words are truth. I heard so many familiar stories in the treatment center and still do every week throughout my recovery.
If you need help, reach out! To me, a friend, family, to your local church, go to an AA/NA meeting, or call:
Suicide Hotline 1-800-273-8255;
Veteran Crisis Hotline 1-800-273-8255; Substance Abuse Hotline 1-855-339-1144.
The hardest thing for me to believe was that there WAS others who could help me - that WANTED to help me.
You are not alone.
WE are not alone. ❤

It’s definitely scary exposing such a personal part of myself on social media but I’m so thankful and honored to be apart of the incredible @imperfectlyperfectcampaign, shedding light on mental health- something very close to my heart. Thankyou @glenn_marsden for breaking down the barriers and for capturing me at my most vulnerable ❤️

- ‘ I think the negative stigma that surrounds mental health problems can be so damaging and almost as dangerous as Mental Health Issues themselves. When people feel they can’t open up or express themselves it makes them feel isolated and can drive people deeper into the depression or anxiety, so it’s so good to see people really starting to talk about it. .
I recently lost my mum to suicide. She was the fourth family member that I have lost to mental illness and it made me realise that I’ve definitely been guilty of not opening up about the Mental Health issues that have affected my life and my family to my friends, and now since a suicide I think it kind of forces open a dialogue so I’ve kind of realised how many people feel almost glad to be able to talk to me now and feel they can share their own problems and their own experiences with mental health. It is kind of nice to know that my friendship can have that deeper level because it affects everyone. Mental Health really affect everyone in some shape or form so it’s something we important that we all need to start talking about’ - @miawoolrich . -If you need to talk, please reach out to @lifelineaustralia or 13 11 14 or call 000 today

10km run today for Diamond Run. It was a beautiful day with blue skies. The first 4km were run with a friend and then I did the remaining 6km by myself. Then it was time for cuddles with my mini-me!
10km today gives me a monthly total of 70.5km this month. My goal is 100km for the month of August for Diamond Run. I'm so close to completing it!

Self love is a practice that many of us struggle with. While it can be challenging to love ourselves and give ourselves grace, we encourage you to start somewhere.
The next time you make a mistake or begin reflecting on disappointments in your life, think about what you learned and how that is helping you become the person you were meant to be.
Remember that we love you and you deserve to be loved-especially by yourself. •

Appreciation post : I’ve written this 20+ times and changed it so much as I don’t know what to say. .
.
Thank you to all the doctors, chemists, psychologists, pharmacologists, and just scientists in general for creating these wonderful little things that keep the devil behind bars. Not had a single intrusive or suicidal thought since December. .
.
Along with CBT, moving home and changing jobs, I wouldn’t have been able to get out of bed or function long enough to make those changes, and as it turns out I quite like living 🤷🏼‍♂️ .

'If you are trying to address leadership skills in the same conversation where you are addressing sexual harassment, your harasser is not going to get it. If you are telling someone else (police, a reporting agency, or even your friend) about bad leadership skills in the same conversation where you want to report sexual harassment, they are going to think you and your harasser just have a personality conflict that you can deal with yourselves.⠀

“I have lots of different mental disorders. I have CPTSD, which lots of people don't really know about because it gets miss diagnosed. I also have anxiety and OCD tendencies and depression, so that's very difficult. It's very stressful considering I have all this stress from school and then I'm trying fix this other thing going on my life while I'm battling depressions. I'm like fighting with myself constantly. I have to find the good in life or else I focus on all the negative. Honestly, just finding that joy and I'm lucky that I have those things that bring me joy.
Music is so powerful because it can help you in ways that other things can't. And focusing on that instead of having to focus on the other things. I'm still getting those emotions out in a different way that I enjoy. When I struggled with friends at school or I'm struggling with other things, I can always sing and form a connection. It’s my happy place.
If you notice something might be up, actually taking the choice to reach out because you might be the only one who has that day. Or you might be the person that they need - even if it's just a small thing. It doesn't have to be high mental illness. Everyone still needs help no matter what it is. Make sure they can get what they need.
There are #ZeroReasonsWhy you’re not worthy of being loved.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

L is for Live
.
.
Some essential keys for work longevity are to work hard, continuously educate yourself, and to live your life fully. Just as we schedule our mortgage payments, dentist appointments, and board meetings, we should have a regular schedule of events for living our lives. .
.
Why do we always put off the things that refresh our minds and bodies? For those of you that don’t put these things off, fantastic. You could probably help others by reminding them about how good it is for them to do the same. .

What will you do this weekend to keep yourself from burning out?

I speak openly about Depression and how it can strike anyone, at any age, regardless of race, gender or practically any other demographic marker you can name.
I do NOT hide and I will not be silenced because educating the public on Mental Illness can help save lives!
What makes an individual susceptible to depression? What are Risk Factors?
1. Personality traits like low self-esteem or pessimism.
2. Stressful life events, including the death of a loved one or financial difficulties.
3. Childhood trauma, like sexual or emotional abuse, or a history of childhood or teenage depression.
4. Family history of depression, other mental health issues, alcoholism or suicide.
5. Being gender-nonconforming and in a nonsupportive family.
6. History of eating disorders or PTSD.
7. Alcohol or drug abuse.
8. Certain health problems such as cancer, stroke, chronic pain or heart disease.
9. Taking some medications, including high blood pressure medications or sleeping pills.

A Dog’s Journey is out now - well worth a watch. Those of you who feel it is just a kids movie that’s okay but one message runs true within the storyline. His purpose is to love and to protect those he comes across in his many lives. We only get one and we believe more people need to realise this is what life’s real purpose is.

Our new Friday feature - #fridaythoughts is all about tapping into areas that create discussion among our parents and even our young coders!
‍
This week we are focusing on gaming coming to many school's curriculum! Running alongside our children's traditional lessons at school, would 'gaming classes' be a negative or positive thing for your child? This @newsbeat article states that at one school, where this has already been introduced, the teachers have noticed that pupils 'confidence, teamwork and communication skills' have grown in ways they've never seen before.

Greta T’s gone to sea and microplastics are falling from the Arctic sky, it’s time to start filling my squares!
Increasingly frustrated and frightened by governments lack of action, yet inspired the individuals making massive lifestyle changes, I’m keen to share the small steps we’re making as a family to reduce plastic use, cut our carbon handprint and live a more sustainable life. If I can influence just a handful of people to make permanent changes to their daily lives, it’s worth giving this a go.

The beliefs we have are so powerful in affecting the way we'll perceive the circumstances and events that occur in our lives.
.
▪️Problems vs. Opportunities
▪️Set backs vs. set ups for even greater success
▪️Why me vs. why not me
.
Have you ever noticed that we don't just have beliefs that we are stuck with? With the gift of agency we can choose which beliefs to feed and grow and keep. We also choose which to toss aside.
.
A belief that I hold dear is the knowledge that I am a child of God, I have a purpose here on Earth and in my life and that in the eternal plan of happiness we are all brothers and sisters.
.
What beliefs do you hold most dear?

I’m so honored to have been asked by Women’s Day Magazine to help educate parents about one of the many risks our children face on social media! 😍
Kids are experiencing some very scary things on social media and many parents don’t know how to address the problem. I’m working hard to educate and empower both parents and kids about what’s out there, what the risks are, and how to parent in a tech conscious way. 😍
Thanks @womansdaymag for helping me with those goals! 😍
Also, thank you to those of you who have chosen to be a part of this wonderful PediMom Village. You are why I do what I do and you are also making change for our kids. Thank you! 😍

Don’t allow stigma to shame you and prevent you from seeking help. Whether you have a mental illness or just need to talk through some things, seeking professional help should be seen as a strength not a shortcoming.

A new study shows that heavy social media use affects girls’ mental health differently than boys. “When girls suffered poor mental health linked to heavy social media use, it seemed to be driven by a combination of being exposed to cyberbullying, missing out on sleep or not getting enough exercise, British researchers reported Tuesday in The Lancet Child & Adolescent Health.” .
Lead author, Russell Viner, a professor of adolescent health at the University College London Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health said, “Our results suggest that social media itself doesn’t cause harm, but that frequent use may disrupt activities that have a positive impact on mental health.” That means social media use among teens 'need not be as negative as often assumed,” especially if they can be encouraged to get enough sleep and exercise and learn how to deal with cyberbullying, added Ann DeSmet, a researcher in the department of movement and sports sciences at Ghent University in Belgium, in an accompanying commentary.
.
“The idea is to promote other positive habits rather than saying to kids, ‘You can’t be on social media as much,’” Jill Emanuele, senior director of the Mood Disorders Center at the Child Mind Institute in New York, told @todayshow .
.
Emanuele encourages parents to go off their screens before bed, find ways to reinforce positive habits, and encourage kids to track the number of hours they spend on social media.

O is for Overcome .
.
How do you face conflicts or struggles? We all have times in our work and personal lives that we need to summon every ounce of energy to prevail over some obstacle that has reared it’s ugly head.
.
.
By taking time to reflect on these times, we can learn not only that we can overcome any issue that may pop up, but we can become efficient at it. The more we practice almost anything, the better we will become. We can also learn by reading the stories of others. We don’t have to personally experience every difficulty that could enter our lives before we learn how to overcome them. Learn from others. Be a student. Know that you can overcome almost anything that life throws at you. These times are about strengthening yourself and showing others that they can learn from you as well.

There are several visible signs of drug use you should always look for if you suspect your teen may be using: ➔ Finding drug paraphernalia (rolling papers or needles)
➔ Finding drug residue or remains (seeds, stems, or powder)
➔ Smelling strong incense/perfumes within your teen’s personal space (to hide the smell of drugs)
➔ Missing medications, alcohol, cigarettes, etc.
➔ Missing cash or other resources.
➔ Finding hidden stashes of drugs or alcohol. http://www.HairConfirm.com

Check out my background! That was a complete fluke.
⠀ 
I've been sat here all day, puling together my podcast and article, where I interview Avrum Bluming MD and Carol Tavris PhD, on their book  Estrogen Matters: Why Taking Hormones in Menopause Can Improve Women's Well-Being and Lengthen Their Lives -- Without Raising the Risk of Breast Cancer. ⠀ ⠀
⠀
I have listened to the podcast 4 times today as I pull my notes together and each time I listen, I am blown away by the facts surround estrogen and why it has been vilified as the enemy. ⠀
⠀
In the podcast we discuss:
▪️the history of estrogen ▪️how the WHI 2002 study which said breast cancer caused cancer was flawed
▪️why we fixated on fear that HRT is harmful
▪️does HRT cause breast cancer?
▪️how HRT can help you live longer
▪️why the terminology around HRT is a big hot mess
▪️what to do if your doctor says no to HRT! ⠀
⠀
I hope you tune in tomorrow and check it out. I honestly found speaking to them both so reassuring. Their only mission in writing this book is to help and educate women about what we actually know about HRT and how it can help you. ⠀
⠀
And as you know, my only mission is to give women education so they can make informed choice. You know how pissed off I am at all the bullshit quackery that exists in the world. Plain, simple, evidenced-based information is what we all deserve #glitteryourtitties

The Table..
I’ve been thinking a lot about the table and what it represents, and what it could represent. Growing up we rarely sat around the table because my mom worked multiple jobs and most of our meals were microwaveable. When we finally were able to sit around the table together there was a unique sense of connection and the world seemed to have slowed down.. even for a moment. These days the table has become a priority for my wife and I and our kids. We gather for dinner and have conversations about the day and what God is doing in our lives. This is a very significant time of the day for our family.
.
I recently heard a message about the table and how personal it can be and I thought to myself, how can we get more people in conversations around a table. How could that change the way that we see things.. maybe slow down, if even for a moment, and listen.
.
I was thinking about Malcom X vs. Martin Luther King Jr. and their two VERY different approaches to addressing the problem of racism and segregation in our country. One used force and one used peace. Hear me out, I am NO expert in this area, but I am just suggesting that we can start a conversation around a table instead of destroying someone else’s.
.
Jesus sat at many tables, and he also destroyed a few. The interesting thing is that the tables Jesus sat at were usually filled with non-believers. The ones he destroyed were probably believers who were trying to confuse worship and stir up trouble.
.
So today as I reflect on what the table could mean for us in our lives, I invite you to sit with me at a table.. this could be literally or metaphorically, and as we begin the conversation my hope is that we can understand each other and not continue to destroy each other.. or others.
.
“And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.” - Heb 10:24-25

When we experience trauma, or even simple rejection, at work, we often spiral into a cycle of self-criticism and suspicion. We constantly ask ourselves questions like, 'What am I doing wrong? What are they thinking about me? What if I'm not cut out for this?' This feels terrible, and our brains are quick to list everything that's wrong with us.⠀
⠀
These self-criticisms are not observations. They are self-abuse. ⠀
⠀
The process of simply shifting the questions we ask ourselves every day can make a huge difference. Instead of 'What's going wrong?' my clients often try out asking their brains questions like, 'How can I build more support?' 'What if I'm right?' and 'What if I inherently deserve respect?' ⠀
⠀
Instead of asking, 'Who might be out to get me?' we shift to 'Who is a potential ally?' Redirecting our brains to see what is working in our favor helps shift power dynamics to create the outcome we want. ⠀
⠀
More on that here: https://buff.ly/2Tm4eU5⠀
⠀
If you know someone who feels alone and afraid at work, encourage them to reach out. I'd love to talk and see if I can help. ⠀

Yesterday I had a fantastic conversation with Heidi McKenzie of @alterurego_ ! 🔥🔥🔥
We talked strategies for staying positive, self-care, confidence, and relearning your body. Heidi answered burning questions regarding sex after her accident, driving and independence, and how to approach a person you’re interested in.
👋🏾👋🏿👋🏼
The work Heidi is doing to build community and inclusion is amazing, not to mention the sense of humor she approaches it with. With shirts sporting lines like “I’m in it for the parking”, Heidi is rolling right through social discomfort and knocking down barriers one ice breaker at a time. Way to #starttheconversation ! 💪🏾💪🏽💪🏿
In her own words from the interview when it comes to confidence whether in a wheelchair or in any situation Heidi says;
“Being able to accept who you are gives you confidence, however you need to do that.”
For more of Heidi’s advice check out our podcast Warrior Woman’s Circle on your podcast apps! For adapted clothing check or Heidi’s company and brand @alterurego_
Thanks Heidi!
