In 'Minor Feelings,' Asian American Racial Trauma is Laid Bare [npr.org]

By Elise Hu, National Public Radio, February 27, 2020 Halfway through her debut essay collection, Minor Feelings, author and artist Cathy Park Hong makes clear her mission: "I have some scores to settle ... with this country, with how we have been scripted." The "we" here are Asian Americans and how we're seen in this country in a time when the us-versus-them dynamic can feel overpowering. In Minor Feelings, the author asks us to reconsider the effects of racism against Asian Americans and...

By Beth Tyson, Psychreg, February 27, 2020 Are you struggling to help a child who has been through hard times? Does the child seem unreachable, unmanageable, and unwilling to try? Are you at your at the end of your rope with explosive behavior? If so, I have a concept to share with you that might help the two of you connect and increase positive interactions within your family or classroom.

Recovering From the Narcissistic Parent and C-PTSD [blogs.psychcentral.com]

By Rebecca C. Mandeville, PsychCentral, February 19, 2020 I’m really interested in exploring the ways in which Complex Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (C-PTSD) and my experiences with parental narcissism and dysfunction have shaped my internal and external behavioral patterns. I want to understand it all. The good, the bad, the ugly and the sad. I think that’s probably close to the proper ratio, three awful things for one good. They are all lessons. For positives, I need to know them in...

By John Kelly, The Chronicle of Social Change, February 27, 2020 The full results won’t be in until next year on Choose 2 Change (C2C), a youth violence prevention effort in Chicago. But the city likes what it’s seen so far, and is expanding the reach a model that could well gain traction in other urban areas. Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) announced that the program, which began in 2015 and has served about 600 youth so far, would be extended for three years to serve an additional 2,000 youths.

How Community Land Trusts Can Advance Racial and Economic Justice [housingmatters.urban.org]

By Gabriella Velasco, Housing Matters, February 26, 2020 Neighborhood “revitalization” that spurs private real estate investment in disinvested neighborhoods has, both intentionally and not, contributed to gentrification and displacement in low-income communities. To combat these consequences, practitioners increasingly use community land trusts (CLT) as a tool to concentrate community control and protect against low-income resident displacement. CLTs are nonprofit, community-based...

Ask the Community

https://www.gofundme.com/f/and...s-becoming-empowered I'm hoping to raise $ to attend this conference on Trauma and healing from abuse that's being put on by victims of Harvey Weinstein. I have been dealing with, trying to speak about child abuse at "home" and in the community that enables it since the 70s. The abuser in "power" was always excused and the truth teller guilted. I have been the one who was silenced. Today abuse is everywhere including the workplace and has been there for...Read More...

Trauma in First Two Years of Life

Jo Spencer
I have never really used the ACES site because it seems so overwhelming to me. I have no idea who, or how, this blog will be seen. My work is in the area of trauma and neglect in the first two years of life. My father was a WWII veteran suffering extreme shell-shock from the war: he was alcoholic, had malaria, was having flashbacks, and had surgery when I was a few-months-old, resulting in 56 abdominal stiches. I was left with him six days a week as my mother worked as a waitress. When I was...Read More...
