Coming back to ‘The Wall': building resilience by learning to trust

Chaplain Chris Haughee ·
Recently, we did an object lesson as part of our Resilience-based series that I call “the Wall.” We talked about how bad things happen in this world despite having a loving God that looks over us. We make bad choices at times that hurt us, and others make bad choices that hurt us. In general, there is a lot of brokenness in relationships that causes a lot of damage. So, I told the children, we learn how to protect ourselves. Just like castles have BIG walls or our cottages on campus have...

"I stay near the pit," my reason for engaging in trauma-informed ministry

Chaplain Chris Haughee ·
I stay near the pit (inspired by Rev. Samuel Shoemaker’s poem, “I Stand by the Door,” and Psalm 40) © Chris Haughee, 2018. All rights reserved. I stay near the pit. My cry was heard and I was lifted from it. And while my feet are steady on the Rock and the path is laid straight before me I was not alone in that pit. There were many others with me, stuck in that mire. So, I stay near the pit. I had tried for a long time—such a long, long time— to make my way out, to find myself planted firm...

Was Jesus' ministry "trauma-informed?" [part 1]

Chaplain Chris Haughee ·
I have written before about a growing trend in education, mental health, social services, and health care that has now extended to ministry settings: becoming trauma-informed . Trauma results when we experience something as physically or emotionally harmful or life threatening. A traumatic event, circumstance or series of events leaves a lasting effect on our ability to experience “life to the full” as Jesus intended (John 10:10). Adversity, and particularly traumatic stress in childhood,...

Was Jesus' ministry "trauma-informed?" [part 2]

Chaplain Chris Haughee ·
Was Jesus’ ministry trauma-informed, part 2: recognizing the signs and symptoms of trauma There is a movement that is beginning to take shape across the country when it comes to ministry settings: becoming trauma-informed . The topic concerns churches that are interested in missional engagement with the culture because there is a growing body of evidence that suggests that if we can break the cycle of adversity in childhood we can help everyone experience “life to the full” as Jesus intended...

Why be "trauma-informed?" - a training for churches by Chaplain Chris Haughee, DMin

Chaplain Chris Haughee ·
As I wrap up my doctoral studies, I am excited to see how the concept of becoming “trauma-informed” in ministry is starting to pick up steam across the country. A large part of the credit for furthering that conversation goes to you--my friends and colleagues here on ACEsConnection! It's been humbling to see how our relatively small ministry in Montana has something to add to the conversation. In fact, far from being behind the curve here in Montana, we are on the cutting edge in terms of...

Linda Ranson Jacobs ·
Chaplain, I love this take. I'm going to be waiting anxiously for the next installment. I've often used Isaiah 61:1 in workshops but now I'm going to incorporate it into my trauma-informed churches workshop. Jesus understood and he had empathy one of the most important traits in dealing with kids in trauma. Thanks so much. Linda

Re: Was Jesus' ministry "trauma-informed?" [part 2]

Linda Ranson Jacobs ·
Interesting take on this concept. I believe Jesus was trauma informed. Look at how he treated the children - pulled them up on his lap; allowed them to contribute to situations by using their merger lunch; healing the children, etc. So many stories in the Bible where children were taken care of and used as examples. When I train children's church leaders I ask them to actually think, "what would Jesus do" with out of control and unruly kids, the ones who have experienced some sort of trauma.
