This Week’s Resources for Catholic Trauma Survivors

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.

Is hope pushing up through the cold in your life? Maybe it’s time to find your cycle-breaking Beatitude. Image: Unsplash

  1. Am I the drama? Mashable actually has a pretty cogent piece on #traumatok and the risks and benefits involved in sourcing mental health support through social media. Fave quote: “High quality, culturally competent, and affordable mental health care is notoriously hard to get in the U.S. By comparison, social media is free. Public processing may be unseemly to those who view it as excessive; for others, it’s an improvised support system that meets an urgent need.”
  2. “Calm down!” Yeah, has that ever helped? No. What actually does help? Naming stuff.
  3. How does your parents’ divorce play into your congestive heart failure? Childhood adversity is a ’cause of causes’ of adult illnesses and mental health problems.
  4. How do you break an addiction to a person?
  5. Did you grow up with a narcissistic parent?
  6. Before y’all flip out, I’m not promoting Buddhism by linking to something from Tiny Buddha. Dominicans are all about promoting the truth, no matter who’s telling it. So here’s a piece about how from this moment forward we are free to tell a new story with our lives.
  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 (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: I found Paul Deiss Smith II via Catholic Mom. Give him a listen!

Thanks for reading, listening & watching, fellow image-bearers. Now give My Domestic Church a look-see.
