This Week’s Resources for Catholic Trauma Survivors
Update: My Domestic Church has taken over the weekly 7 Quick Takes. I’ll try linking up there.
- PTSD treatment options: here’s an update via an efficacy study comparing prolonged exposure vs. cognitive processing therapy. TLDR: what the patient prefers actually makes a difference in outcome. Who knew.
- Breaking free from narcissistic abuse? You may need these tools for surviving a narcissist’s smear campaign.
- I find it healing to see survivors stand together and stand up for each other against any authority figure who uses that authority to cause harm. #IstandwithCharismaCarpenter and #IstandwithRayFisher
- In case you needed to love dogs even more, Dog training therapy may improve symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder.
- In a relationship but can’t quite put your finger on what’s wrong? Maybe you’re experiencing a trauma bond.
- I’ve been criticized for letting my kids turn down hugs from me. Here’s why I don’t make them hug me when they don’t want to.
- 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 (please, leave a review–it takes courage, but it helps the people who need the message find it), and don’t forget to link up with this month’s An Open Book from Carolyn Astfalk & Catholic Mom.
This week’s AV: we’re on another LOTR kick, this time with Second Shift of Kid. I might even be able to get her to listen to this one:
Thanks for reading, listening & watching, fellow image-bearers. Now give My Domestic Church a look-see.
