What do trauma survivors need? This week’s resources, Catholic style
Inclusion does not equal endorsement of concept, source, writer, etc.
Update: My Domestic Church has taken over the weekly 7 Quick Takes. I’ll try linking up there.
- Msgr. Pope is over at OSV with this important piece for intergenerational trauma survivors: What does the Church teach about intergenerational curses?
- “You’re too sensitive!” Maybe, maybe not. And if I am, what does that tell you about my past? Heads up for this scholarly article: Pain catastrophizing, pain sensitivity and fear of pain are associated with early life environmental unpredictability: a path model approach.
- You all know I’m going to try to attract you all to Catholic In Recovery at every chance I get.
- A little more academic nerddom for you: Child Abuse as an Example of Coexistence of Emotional and Physical Trauma Among Children: An Academic Overview With Altmetric Perspective.
- For the parents who care: Like a bomb going off in the family: supporting parents whose children experience sexual abuse
- So much trauma could be prevented from being passed on if we just took better care of the parents: Supporting Patients With Serious Mental Illness and Comorbid Substance Use Disorder and Posttraumatic Stress Disorder
- 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: have we heard from Dr. Ramani enough lately? I say no, we have not!
Thanks for reading, listening & watching, fellow image-bearers. Now give My Domestic Church a look-see.
