Our Goal

OUR GOAL

To provide a unique environment where folks who have experienced trauma can openly and safely talk. We strive to respect, validate, and learn from each other.

ACHIEVING OUR GOAL

Achieving our goal requires cooperative collaboration amongst members and staff. Members posts remain appropriate and relevant to topics. Terms of Service are clearly posted to help members maintain the dignity of the board. Members of this group are at a stage in their healing to independently regulate their own behavior, as well as keeping themselves safe while on the forums. Staff regularly monitor posts and replies to ensure the board remains a safe and comfortable environment of learning for everyone.

As a friendly and kind community, we validate each other as equally special and significant.

These forums are active and the community not too large or too small - about 400 post per day. There are many forums on different topics. The topics range in subject matter also. You are welcome to interact as you feel comfortable.

This is a safe place for members. We encourage building coping skills, learning from each other and material shared. We discourage sharing explicit memories of past abuse. We feel that processing memories be done with professionals. There are no practicing therapists on these forums. Therefore, topics that call for therapist type responses are discouraged.

Feel free to look around. Realize that, as a guest, your view of the forums is minimal. These forums are otherwise private to the public view and/or search engines.

We have literally hundreds of articles and provide workshops for everyone. Please feel free to email me anytime with questions. I am also providing a tutorial that should help with navigating our site.

The very best to you,
Felicity Lee

PTSD in children, looking for resources

Post by Beverly on 2/7/2016, 6:17 am

Hello,
My granddaughter had the experience at 4 years old of watching her younger sister (3yrs) drown. Today my granddaughter is 8.
She is struggling in a school system that does not understand the effects of trauma and a loving mommy who is struggling with her own grief. I care for her before and after school, outings etc...
I have not found many resources for young children? Looking for a workbook or online program we can complete this summer.
I am in Arizona so .... ?
I appreciate any suggestions.

I wonder if there might be a list of resources in the office of a developmental psychologist in your area. I'm not sure if your granddaughter would benefit from some short-term therapy.

I'm sorry you are worrying about her and don't know where to turn. That is very stressful on you, I'm sure.

You are in the public area - it is up to you whether you want this post to be shared in public search engines or not. We can move it to the private area if you like.

You might look for 'Trauma-Informed Care' articles now since this is a big topic for teachers. Our conference is going to really look at this - 'how to practice trauma-informed care in practice as teachers, clinicians, drs, etc.' We will have several experts talking on this - because, my research has shown that most don't know much about 'trauma' and so how do they even practice 'trauma-informed care' - first you have to learn about trauma and the affects of it on people - especially children.

There are some good articles out there, though, for children - I will take a look around.




     

Don't miss the Ivory Garden Conference this year!!

Thank you. You gave me some good language to start with. Looks like me and her are gonna have cut our own path.

Public is ok. I could use all the ideas available as I myself am not always stable enough to be her rock.
