The Mirroring Between Individual and Collective Trauma Healing

Remembering past trauma begins the “re-membering” process of taking our fragmented pieces and putting them back together. This applies to individuals with trauma, as well as the collective traumas we experience in societies and our world. Remembering trauma is a growth process because the memories open the door to putting all the pieces together which leads to our healing. We know that our physiological reactions to trauma are held in our bodies and DNA. As individuals, before we can begin...

University of Illinois: How Toddler-Mother Attachment Impacts Adolescent Brain and Behavior

Interpersonal trust is a crucial component of healthy relationships. When we interact with strangers, we quickly gage whether we can trust them. And those important social skills may be shaped by our earliest relationship with caregivers. Adolescents who had an insecure attachment to their mothers as toddlers are more likely to overestimate the trustworthiness of strangers, according to a new study from the University of Illinois. “The idea is to understand whether early attachment...

Building Relationship with Ourselves and Others

I recently listened to an interview featuring David Richo. He wrote a book several years ago, How to be An Adult in Relationships , in which he explained what he calls the Five A’s that help relationships flourish. What he said made so much sense, and I saw applications beyond individual relationships. I believe we can use the Five A’s to better understand relationships with others and ourselves and even apply it to other contexts. He explained that the Five A’s are what we need as infants...

Dr. Anda, one of the co-principal investigators of the ACE Study, discusses his concerns about misuses of ACE scores and how the 10 question ACE survey was developed simply as an activity for one of his presentations.
