"Transforming the Lives of Women Who Transform their World"

Healing Beyond Childhood Trauma

Did you know that most people in the US have at least one ACE? ACE's are adverse childhood experiences that not only causes harm to the brain of children it changes they way they respond to the stresses of life, compromises their immune systems and causes other chronic health conditions over their lifetime. According to a CDC Kaiser Permanente ACE Study childhood trauma and ACE places people at risk for depression, chronic diseases, mental illness, financial problems, social problems and becoming a victim of violence and sexual crimes.


Other ACE surveys have expanded the types of ACE's and those findings while not surprising are also noted below. Below are traumatic experiences linked to social, financial, mental, emotional and physical problems. 


1. A family member who is diagnosed with a mental illness or depressed.

2. Witnessing a mother being abused.

3.A family member who is addicted to drugs or alcohol.

4. Physical, sexual and verbal abuse.

5. A family member who is in prison.

6. Parental separation or divorce.

7. Physical or emotional neglect.

8. Living in an unsafe neighborhood.

9. Experiencing or witnessing racism.

10. Witnessing violence outside of the home.

11. Involvement with the foster care system.

12. Losing a family member due to deportation.

13. Witnessing a father being abused by a mother.

14.Living in a war zone.

15.Being bullied by a peer or adult.


If you have one or more ACE's you are not alone. Research shows that nearly two-third of adults have at least one. Additionally, the scores are even more revealing. For example people with an ACE score of 4 are twice as likely to smoke and seven times more likely to struggle with alcoholism addiction. Additionally, a score of 4 or more is likely to increase the risk of chronic diseases such as emphysema or chronic bronchitis by 400 percent, while also increasing the risk for attempted suicide by 1200. ACE's is also linked to chronic workplace absenteeism, ER visits, mental illness, criminal justice involvement and increased healthcare costs. 


The higher the ACE score the more likely it is that people with these scores have more marriages, violence, drug prescriptions, increased risk for broken bones, greater struggles with depression and autoimmune diseases. Studies show that the life span of individuals with an ACE score 6 or higher are at risk for being shortened by 20 years.


The impact of childhood traumatic experiences doesn't just go away as people age. Rather, what a person has lived through directly or indirectly leaves bits and pieces. Harmful traces of the past that keeps showing up has the ability to be passed down from one generation to the next causing generational cycles of unhealed trauma and strongholds.


While the brain does not know the difference between one kind of traumatic experienced and toxic stress from the other we are not stuck with stressed out brains, painful memories, chronic diseases, mental illness or substance abuse. 

It's essential that people receive an effective diagnosis from an effective team of caring medical professionals who can create qualified treatment plan so the journey to healing and recovery can begin.

Unchained Breaking Cycles and Changing Lives Youth Empowerment Conference

Every student has the ability to learn and grow. Children who cultivate a love for learning can identify their purpose and flourish as healthy, productive adults. Regardless of income, color, nationality, educational status, or zip code every parent has a dream for his or her child to succeed in life. Even parents who have not completed their high school diploma have high hopes for their children to become purpose driven adults and difference makers in their field or industry.

Nationwide educational institutions are facing crisis. Unpredictable and unsafe environments, school violence, sexual assaults, bullying, campus rape, threats and teen suicides continues to impact students, school personnel, families and entire communities. Law enforcement, first responders and grief crisis counselors are diligently serving these hurting communities. Unfortunately, the impact of these events often last longer the one can imagine.

Patrina Torres minister, author, pastoral counselor and CEO of Crossroad Women and Family Services is hosting  “Unchained Breaking Cycles and Changing Lives”. This youth empowerment conference is scheduled to be held on Saturday, April 282018, from 12:00 PM to 5 PM at the J. Watson Bailey Middle School, 118 Merilina Avenue, Kingston, NY.  The conference will feature authors, empowerment speakers, music, food, and prizes. 

Patrina Torres will sign copies of her book entitled, The Exodus Breaking Cycles and Changing Lives: Repositioning Your Soul to Thrive After Domestic Violence. “The purpose of the conference is to heal hearts, restore hope, renew minds. School violence is a very important public health and safety issue. All across America innocent students, parents, siblings are trying to put the broken pieces of their lives back together”, said Torres. “We want to offer encouragement, comfort and empowerment for Ulster County students and families”, she added.

The term aphorism originates from late Latin aphorismus and Greek aphorismos.
https://strekatilo294.com
But, the aphorism is short and sweet.
Don’t count on things that haven’t happened yet because something unexpected could occur.
But Yoda isn’t having it.
Washington also said, It is better to offer no excuse than a bad one.
Finally, Actions speak louder than words is another classic example.
But these days.
Build a storyline around that saying.
Practice what you preach.
And since they’re universal truths about life, they help persuade your reader to accept your message.
Better safe than sorry is a piece of wisdom from Samuel Lover’s book, Rory O’More.
Luke’s having a tough time, and he’s discouraged.
We’ve all probably had to learn that the hard way.
Interestingly enough, this saying was initially intended as a compliment.
Today, calling someone a Jack of all trades is usually a jab because it implies that their knowledge is superficial.
And get this.
