I graduated Summa Cum Laude from LSSU... And I’ve been talking about ACEs & trauma for a long time.  I know Jeff Peterman - well for Jeff it’s been a long time but we went to school (LSSU and UMich) together. Awesome to see some interest from the Sault.  Is there a way they would let some of this be done via one of the web platforms?   

The best buffer is Neurofeedback. It’s not enough to have 1 safe and stable person for those severely traumatized kids who were traumatized at the hands of their parents because we can’t accept human attachment appropriately - we are scared to death of people, even people who are good to us which is why 1 safe and stable person could take a very, very, very long time to be helpful (and we end up looking like jerks and feeling like jerks because we avoid people like the plague even people who are nice to us because human interaction is massively aversive because of how much people damaged us and our ability to trust) or completely filled with rage at the people & systems who let us down or most likely both.  I’m talking about the most severely affected kids and those are going to be the kids in the mental health court but some will be highly perfectionistic, compulsively compliant kids who are doing great in school or at least not getting in trouble but are associated with child welfare/foster care or maybe just have CPS case reports but those kids  are off the charts at risk for suicide. This is a really great book too.

Wow am I pleased I opened this request!  I suggest reaching out to Lives in the Balance folks who work with Ross Greene’s Collaborative Problem Solving model and have had a great impact in the juvenile detention setting providing education/therapeutic services.

Your grass roots efforts would be welcomed in the following FB groups:

Alliance Against Seclusion & Restraint 

International Coalition Against Restraint and Seclusion.

Thank you for your service to youth with mental health conditions.
