This Week’s [pretty Catholic] Trauma Survivor Resource Roundup

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.

Do the feasting days of Easter have you drifting into habits you tried dropping during Lent? Maybe it’s time to find your cycle-breaking Beatitude or take Self-Control 101. Image © Erin McCole Cupp 2022
  1. Msgr. Pope is over at OSV with this important piece for intergenerational trauma survivors: What does the Church teach about intergenerational curses?
  2. “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.
  3. You all know I’m going to try to attract you all to Catholic In Recovery at every chance I get.
  4. 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.
  5. For the parents who care: Like a bomb going off in the family: supporting parents whose children experience sexual abuse
  6. 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
  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: 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.
