Re: UK visitor to learn about resilience work in Walla Walla [Union-Bulletin.com]

Walla Walla's efforts under Teri Barla's leadership is an epicenter for working collaboratively to build community resilience! Now it is so exciting to see that this work is rippling across WA state, across the US and now all the way to Suffolk County, England! I cannot wait to hear more about Tod Sullivan's visits. As a me ntal health ambassador, Tod is traveling via a Winston Churchill Memorial Trust Fellowship. I think we are witnessing the future! Incredible! Karen

Participants spilled their responses into the chat box: “headache…teeth grinding…can’t think clearly…nervous stomach…ruminating thoughts…muscle pain…itchiness…bad dreams.” [ At left: #TakeCarePHL during COVID-19 #StayHome #StaySafe.

Self-Regulation Requires Community Care

Ty Warren ·

One’s ability to regulate emotions is achieved by recognizing and transmuting the feelings, attitudes and thoughts that are naturally the unconscious drivers of behavior. Those who learn and develop their ability to self-regulate typically report improved attitudes and better relationships both at home and at work. Self-control and self-regulation are two very different...

Talking ACEs and building resilience in prison

At Washington State Penitentiary, Tony McGuire talks to the inmates in his construction trades apprenticeship preparation (CTAP) class about ACEs, trauma and resilience every single day. Not only is he teaching the guys a trade, but he also teaches them how to be a healthy, happy and well-adjusted employee. Note: Becoming a healthy, happy, well-adjusted employee is way harder than basic carpentry, plumbing, electrical and HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning).

Partner Showcase No. 7 -- Dr. Don Ashley is not your typical pediatrician. If I’m reading Dr. Ashley correctly, he suggests that our bodies hold memory patterns from early childhood experiences that control our biological and decision making processes throughout our lives. In his words: “Pretty scary to have your body sabotage your health, sabotage your marriage, and sabotage your work”.
