Research on Effectiveness of TIC in Camden

Dan Rhoton ·
Hello, everyone! Hopeworks N Camden is embarking on formal academic study of the difference that our implementation of Trauma Informed Care has had on our outcomes with youth. We are lucky in that we have strong "before" and "after" datasets. Natasha Fletcher, of the Center for Urban Research and Education, is leading the study. I have posted a brief summary of the study below. Who is excited by this? Who would like to continue to hear more about our progress in this? We think it is a really...

Re: Children and Toxic Stress: The Discussion Continues

One point made by Julie Campbell at the panel yesterday on helping people overcome experiences of toxic stress was on understanding "It's not what's wrong with you, it's what happened to you" in context of shifting from shame to understanding. Is this an idea that can be used to move systems forward? In changing our view? What would need to happen to do that?

We have an extraordinary moment before us here. Yesterday's event framed the issue of trauma and the effects of toxic stress so well, but it is now incumbent on the participants to take the next steps. I agree with strategies that include the sharing of narratives and storytelling (Julie Campbell's example yesterday was clear and inspiring), but we also need to engage and implore our payors and policy makers to include ACEs as a routine part of all health screening. The link between ACEs...

Sorry for this spammy post, but: I think that a greater effort needs to be made to change public attitudes as well. Obviously this needs to start with the professions, as noted above, but it can't be limited to them. One of the hardest things about growing up with trauma is that you feel defective and isolated, and other people often treat you that way, too. As a traumatized child it gets harder to establish and maintain productive/trusting relationships, even though traumatized children...

Re: Why are you joining the Philadelphia ACES Connection Group?

Stephen Sandelich ·
Hey everyone. Just wanted to introduce myself. I first heard about ACEs when I was a medical student working at St. Christopher's doing research with their child abuse prevention work. Since then, I have continued to work at St. Chris and see the effects of toxic stress and ACEs on a daily basis. I've also been involved in the development of an amazing collaboration with St. Chris, Institute for Safe Families, Congresso, and CCTC called the Family Safe Zone. We are working to address toxic...

I'm a little late to this discussion, but I was trained to teach trauma sensitive yoga through the Street Yoga Teacher Training: www.streetyoga.org . This summer I am running a trauma sensitive parent-child yoga group, Yo-Fam, for families in behavioral health treatment at my agency. So far, the interest has been astounding and I'm scrambling for more mats. This will be my first attempt at such a group, but if it goes well, would love to bring more to the area. I am very interested in the...

Re: Feedback for School District of Philadelphia

Leslie Peters RN ·
Hello! As a RN who has spent the last 13 years providing home care to women who have a history of ACE's and as a woman who spent 50 out of my 55 years living with the day to day effects of chronic toxic childhood stress, I am thrilled to see this platform introduced into the schools. In my work I have discovered that the Cylce of Poverty is so closely tied to the Cycle of Our Stories, which often include the Cycle of ACE's. As crazy as it sounds, families need to first be aware of their...
