On CBS This Morning, Oprah Winfrey gave a preview of an upcoming 60 Minutes segment she recently filmed about childhood trauma and resilience.
The 60 Minutes story will air this Sunday, March 11 at 7:00 p.m. ET and 6 p.m. central time on CBS 58.
She also interviewed SaintA client, Alisha, a very brave and inspiring young woman who shares her truth about adverse childhood experiences and the healing that is possible through relationships and reason to be.
The 60 Minutes story came to be after Oprah read the series “A Time to Heal,” by John Schmid of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and decided to pursue this important topic. As most of us know, Oprah has Milwaukee roots and has been open about her own adversity when she was young.
We are so pleased and grateful for the attention Oprah and 60 Minutes are bringing to the important topics of trauma and resilience. It has been humbling for our staff, and especially for Alisha and her family, to be included in this monumental story for the trauma informed care movement.
Take a look at the interview Oprah did on CBS This Morning (the link is below) but be prepared – as people dedicated to ACEs awareness and trauma informed care, it will give you the chills to see someone with such influence talk so fluently and passionately about this topic.
For all of us who have ever wished we had a larger microphone to help educate the public about ACEs, here’s a megaphone we could have only dreamed about.
