Author of "Bruised Reeds and Smoldering Wicks" study connects with the Arizona Trauma-Informed Faith Community

Chaplain Chris Haughee ·
I was pleased to be able to connect with my friend and colleague in trauma-informed ministry, Sanghoon Yoo (@thefaithfulcity), a few weeks ago to present insights into how trauma-informed care connects with the heart of the Christian gospel. God is continuing to work through the amazing churches, pastors, ministry leaders, and participants in the Arizona Trauma-Informed Faith Initiative, and it was encouraging to see how many were able to turn out, even on a busy Monday afternoon. We...

Drawing connections, building empathy and resilience in traumatized children

Chaplain Chris Haughee ·
At Intermountain's residential services, we have spent a lot of time this past month focusing on thankfulness, gratitude, and recognizing how richly we have been blessed. This has allowed me, as their chaplain, to encourage empathetic responses to the needs of others while also building a positive self-image as each child recognizes that they have something to give others. Woven into this narrative was a recognition of our interdependence and that it is not a sign of weakness to acknowledge...

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...

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.
