Worth Forwarding - "Caught between the Amygdala and a Hard Place" - by Karyn Purvis, Ph.D. & David Cross, Ph.D.

Steven Dahl ·
As so many disturbing and traumatic events involving children have been covered by the media recently - it caused me to reflect on my own journey of becoming trauma-informed. Now that I know what I know, I cannot view such stories in a trauma- un informed way. I've found myself in discussions with others who may, or may not be, trauma-informed. It turns out this one factor predictably correlates with the type of conversation that ensues around any topic covered by the media where children...

Healing the Inner Child, part 3

How do you root out the lies that were planted in your head when you were traumatized as a child? Most of us come to believe things that are not true about ourselves in the midst of childhood trauma and then carry that belief unconsciously, perhaps...

Thanks for making the changes, Dale. It's so great that you're a Wikipedia author. Can you add the link in that sentence? -- http://acestoohigh.com/2012/03...of-childhood-trauma/ And the sentence after it, I think it's supposed to be faith-based instead of faith abased. Cheers, J.

I posted an ADDENDUM to the "Adverse Childhood Experiences Study" Wikipedia article, near the bottom of the page, but above the list of cited references. I regret I am not an "author" who had "created an [Wikipedia] account" beforehand....(Perhaps I'll create an account soon, just in case supplementary information "seems fitting". Thank You Dale, for this.

Re: Silent No More

Maria, I have written a 145 page, 26 lesson, faith-based workbook entitled, Overcoming a Difficult Childhood. The curriculum is currently being used in 14 ministries in 4 states. The book is a combination of solid science and sound biblical principles. University of California will be studying the effectiveness of the program beginning Sept of this year. The curriculum is used in 7 recovery ministries. If you email me at aceovercomers@sbcglobal.net, I can forward you a sample of the lessons.

Re: Silent No More

The subject of abuse and the effects of adverse childhood experiences are ignored in nearly all seminaries and Bible colleges. Churches are not equipped to understand or minister to people exposed to abuse or family dysfunction. Eight years ago I became aware of The ACE Study. It changed my ministry. Two years ago I started ACE Overcomers, a Bible-based program to help teens and adults overcome the effects of abuse, neglect and dysfunction. I speak in churches to inform both staff and...

Steve I have wanted to ask you this and it is a serious question. In one of your posts you stated something like in a strange twist of fate it is us without high aces scores that can make the difference in the area of awareness of aces... I hadn't responded but had wanted to--I think you are right and you are wrong. In other words there are two sides to this coin. And there is the middle for those with a moderate numbers of ACES. I think when my thinking brain goes off line as is often the...

ACE Overcomers has been at the forefront of the faith-based trauma-informed movement. We train pastors, laymen, law enforcement officers, social, behavioral, and mental health workers in many states. My curriculum, "Overcoming a Difficult Childhood" is used across the states, into Canada, D.R. Congo, and Uganda. Additionally we have a secular program, "Building Healthy Life Skills" (TM) used in high schools and jails. Both programs have been studied by University of California Merced and...
