An ACES Presentation as a Sermon

Dale Fletcher ·
My 45-minute Understanding ACES teaching was delivered on Sunday to a church in Rock Hill, South Carolina. This will be followed by a special weekly series that addresses the Christian/biblical solution to the many spiritual risk factors that stem from early life trauma.

Do You Need Spirituality to Recover from CPTSD?

Anna Runkle ·
During a break in taping my new course on dating and relationships, I recorded this story about how hard it can be to change the self-defeating patterns that so often flow from Childhood PTSD. I talk about one summer when I was working hard to get through a dark time, and then a miracle took me by surprise. You can learn the writing/meditation techniques I mention as a source of daily healing, here . You can access my articles, courses and resources for people with Childhood PTSD on my blog,...

Faith and Mental Health: Creating a culture of encounter and friendship

Article introduces the Mental Health and Faith Community Partnership which the Interfaith Disability Advocacy Coalition helped launch with the American Psychiatric Association and focuses on how congregations and faith leaders can work with psychiatrists and the mental health community to reduce stigma and...

From suffering to triumph... learning through adversity during Lent

Chaplain Chris Haughee ·
My approach to my own personal adversity and trauma has been deeply shaped by my spirituality. I grew up in a liturgical church, which means that we kept to something called the "Church calendar" which had seasons built into it for various readings, celebrations and observances. Every late winter brought with it the experience of "Ash Wednesday" that led into Lent, a time of self-examination, observance of disciplines and practices that framed human suffering into a larger context, a grand...

Mass Shootings and ACES. Spiritual Issues Require Spiritual Solutions!

Dale Fletcher ·
The primary solution to reducing the number of ‘mass shootings‘ and ‘hate crimes’ and ‘gun violence’ that occur in our country is not another policy or law. The solution lies in getting to and addressing the root issues that are driving people to conduct these horrific crimes. I believe the emphasis must be placed on prevention and healing at the deepest, personal level…. getting to the root of the problem at hand. By getting to the “heart” of the issue!

The Books That Helped Me Transition from Trauma to Triumph: A Book Review Series - "The Power of Now"

Teri Wellbrock ·
The author takes us on a journey into a deep place within us, a place where the truth is known "within every cell of (our) body"; beyond the masks we wear, the criticisms we've cloaked ourselves in, our over-thinker personas, fueled by the old doubts we've absorbed into our beings.

Was Jesus’ ministry “trauma-informed?” [part 4]: Responding to trauma within the compassionate Kingdom of God

Chaplain Chris Haughee ·
There is a movement taking shape across the country when it comes to ministry settings: becoming trauma-informed . I am personally invested in this movement and I am intrigued by the ways I see connections between Jesus’ teachings and trauma-informed ministry principles. In the first post in the series, I focused only the first identifier of a trauma-informed ministry: the realization of the widespread impact of trauma and potential paths for recovery. In the second and third posts, I...

Hi Dale, What a fabulous opportunity for Redeeming Life Ministries. I would be extremely interested to hear what you had to say. Sometimes studying about ACE's is depressing, but finding ways to link ACE recovery and prevention to our faith offers incredible hope and healing. I am very glad we have had a chance to connect and look forward to continued co-learning!

Hi Folks! I'm attaching two documents that I used to deliver the teaching I mentioned in the post above. There is a Powerpoint file that I used on the Sunday that I've converted to a PDF. And the script that accompanies the Powerpoint is also in a PDF document. This presentation and the supporting documents are a 'work in progress.' As Ronnie and I present this to other churches and ministries in the area, I'm sure that it will evolve. We are doing our best to share this important material...

Re: An ACES Presentation as a Sermon

Margie Ann Neugebauer ·
I"m wondering why you list spiritual issues with heart issues. In my view, they are two separate systems for describing our whole person. I don't see psychological therapy anywhere as a viable research based approach to shame, guilt, forgiveness, anger, abandonment, etc. Yes, they can be spiritual, but therapy deals with those issues also. I prefer to speak of wholeness including heart, mind, spirit, and body. They are all interconnected and each has its own therapeutic modalities. Theology...

Re: An ACES Presentation as a Sermon

Dale Fletcher ·
Hi Margie, Thanks for your comment! My appreciation is that we human beings are at our core, spiritual in nature. All of our relational experiences and circumstances affect our spirit, our inner most nature.... which I think can also be called our heart. I think it is not possible to separate emotions, heart, spirit and the mind. They are all so intricately interconnected. I teach that ACEs are issues of the heart/spirit. They are wounds to a person at their deepest level. As I Christian, I...

Donna Chacko, M.D. ·
Thanks so much for sharing all of this information and all your hard work. Choosing the right words for these discussions is challenging....mind, spirit, soul, heart?? It's not black and white. As a doctor, I first think of the heart as the incredible pumping heart that pumps 1500-2000 gallons of blood each day as it recirculates our 5 quarts of blood. I guess that's why I stick with body, mind, and spirit (soul). However we describe our parts, we can all agree they are God given and ...

How are your Thursday sessions going? Are there slides for Thursdays als available?

Re: An ACES Presentation as a Sermon

Dale Fletcher ·
Hi Daun, we are not using slides for our Thursday sessions. We are slowing addressing the most prevalent spiritual risk factors and issues of the heart and their associated biblical principles/truths. This Thursday at least one of the participants experienced a very, very powerful release/inner healing/deliverance. It was life changing for her, praise God!

I'll jump on this bandwagon also and would like to see your slides. I've done ACEs training for children's ministers and sent someone my slides and presentation. Can't remember who it was. But my slides are more for children's ministers and I'd like to see the slides for grown up people. Ha, ha.

Dale, You are continuing to do such great work...not just directly with those in your programs, but by sharing your material so generously. Thank you so much. I was thinking about how each of us reacts to ACEs when we first hear about them--immediately trying to see where we fit in the survey. Have you read anything written about this? Such as specific calls for action depending on where you fit...hi score, low score, children have high score but you don't, etc. I hope you are well. I can...

Thanks for the encouragement Donna! To answer your question, I have not yet developed such a 'next step' document, etc. In doing a quick search I found this - My ACES are too high, now what Is this the kind of thing that you are talking about, but from a faith perspective? And thanks for the encouragement to self care. I'm on it.... with God's help! ~ Dale

Re: An ACES Presentation as a Sermon

Daun Kauffman ·
Two more questions, if you will indulge me? -- 1) Do you have a "completed" edition of Slide #40 (or a summary "completion")? -- 2) What is the Kauffman 2016 source which you reference on page 9 in the "script"?

Re: An ACES Presentation as a Sermon

Daun Kauffman ·
Great! Thank you.

Re: An ACES Presentation as a Sermon

Dale Fletcher ·
Daun, it seems that my reference to Kauffman, 2016 came from this internet page - https://www.youthranch.org/edu...onal-impacts-of-aces It's clear to me now that the complete reference is not included. And I see you may be the referenced author. Do you have an accurate reference source that should be used? And attached is a PPT slide with a completed table of Biblical Principles for Risk Factors.
Comment

Re: An ACES Presentation as a Sermon

Daun Kauffman ·
Dale, Thank you so much for the Principles portion of slide 40! (and the notes). You have been exceedingly helpful and I appreciate it. The reference MAY be to me for something I wrote on my internet site "LucidWitness.com" in August 2016, Titled "Nowhere to Hide: The Elephant in the [Class]room" (Daun Kauffman). I was curious (but not certain) because it seemed so close to home. Thank you again. Daun
