7QT for Catholic Trauma Survivors 1Oct2021

Here’s me, doing my bit to participate weekly in Kelly’s Seven Quick Takes over at This Ain’t the Lyceum.

So here’s…

This Week’s Resources for Catholic Trauma Survivors

Takes. Best described as quick. Seven of them.

Is it time for change? Maybe it’s time to find your cycle-breaking Beatitude. Image: Unsplash
  1. Working on Filled With Good: Theology of the Body for Food Addicts (apply for a spot on the beta team at this link), and I came across this one: The Adverse Childhood Experiences Study — the largest, most important public health study you never heard of — began in an obesity clinic.
  2. Even if you’re past the toddler tantrum stage, you still may be experiencing (or letting loose with) the less obvious kinds of tantrums & meltdowns. “Ask the pediatrician: How can parents deal with children’s tantrums” goes way beyond the usual “how to derail your child’s emotional train” into the things children need from their parents outside of their tantrum time.
  3. I was so excited to see @mentalhealness on TikTok featured in this article, “Self-confessed narcissist exposes inner thoughts of an emotional abuser.
  4. Echo News out of Australia has an article on emotional abuse, “Loved ones cut the deepest.”
  5. Well, what a surprise! It turns out subsidiarity (helping parents so they can help & bond with their children) is more effective than rounding up kids without their parents and trying to fix them! What a concept! How Parents Can Find Their Strength and Resillience.
  6. “Why didn’t you report this abuse?” Here’s why: Olympic Athletes’ Testimonies Show Why Rape Victims Don’t Trust Police.
  7. Ending with your weekly reminder that All Things New: Breaking the Cycle and Raising a Joyful Family is available for purchase. Already read your copy? Leave a review on Amazon and/or Goodreads, and don’t forget to link up with this month’s An Open Book from Carolyn Astfalk & Catholic Mom.

For this week’s media, I’m sharing a recent find: What happens when someone with an untreated personality disorder becomes a grandparent?

And now go give Kelly and her 7QTs a look see!


    1. That will go live for my beta team on Thursday, October 7 (password protected). I’m anticipating to do a wider release of the course on January 2, 2022, and it’ll be at my courses page (https://erinmccolecupp.com/courses/). If you’re not already, you can also get updates by subscribing to my newsletter (take the quiz & subscribe at the link in the menu on the right side of this page). Thank you!
