It’s TIC time! Not Tic-Tok 😊. It’s time to learn about Trauma-Informed Care. How informed are we about TIC – Trauma-Informed Care?
We all live in a broken world. If you’ve survived any form of #Trauma, you are brave. The feelings of Trauma are hazy, frigid, and unsafe. The floor tilts under your feet. You reach out to grab a hand that isn’t always there or perhaps will never be there. Most time, you fall to the ground, over and over again.
Trauma terrorizes our existence daily as it results from us witnessing and surviving a life-threatening incident. For some individuals, it shakes them to their core, and the aftermath lingers for a #lifetime.
What hurts the most is that the damages caused by Trauma are highly personalized. Those suffering lasting effects often see darkly through life’s lens.
Most traumas shatter our worldview.
Suddenly, we see the earth through the lens of mistrust, skepticism, and anxiety. The world begins to reel around us. It rescinds our trust in life. Like it or not, we must revisit and revise our implicit beliefs after a trauma.
Life isn’t without its challenges, and humans are ever committed to healing, growth, understanding, and hopefully, renewed optimism. However, when it comes to mental health, we need to address all from the inside out, including socioeconomic and racial disparities.
Approximately 50% of adults have experienced at least one traumatic event, and many will continue to encounter nerve-wracking experiences in their lives as we plunge further into a global crisis.
Suffice it to say, a lot is happening in the mental health space today and the need for us all to know what Trauma-informed care is all about is non-negotiable.
Are you experiencing Trauma? There is hope!
There is no one-size-fits-all approach to trauma recovery. To respond to and recover from Trauma, we must understand what TIC is all about.
TIC is a psychological intervention that aims to decrease the effects of Trauma through
. Creating awareness that Trauma exists.
. Identify how Trauma affects all individuals.
. Respond to Trauma by practicing what you have learned.
Let’s become more trauma-informed!
MWS (Mental Wellness Society), Abraham-Gerard Meyer, Ph.D., and Sherry Skyler Kelly, Ph.D., are constantly looking at the principal causes of Trauma in Ukraine and recovery strategies.
What is the ‘best’ therapy for Trauma, you ask?
Stay tuned for more on that!
Blessings and Love ❤️
