“I want to be in the yoga training because I want to learn how to manage my emotions plus from what I know it’s relaxing.”

Hey IG supporters & followers, @ompowerproject and I are still fundraising to bring a trauma informed yoga training to 10 refugee girls and two of their psychosocial counselors @wearerefushe in April. With the help of RefuSHE teachers, counselors, and caseworkers, we’ve selected the ten girls who will become leaders of a therapeutic yoga practice in their community. Bakita, pictured here w permission, is a refugee from South Sudan, and was selected because she’s taken on a leadership role in group therapy sessions with other girls undergoing counseling. After the training, Bakita will be able to lead the group through a breath-based yoga sequence, and use tools like 3-part breath to ground everyone before talk therapy. Simple, but powerful. ✨

Please help us give Bakita the knowledge, skills, and tools to create more holistic healing in herself and her community. See link in my bio to donate and stay tuned for more photos of future trauma informed yoga ambassadors in Kenya.

People say things like, I hate guns; or, I hate heroin; or I hate gang violence. Nobody says they hate that emotional health is not valued enough to be emphasized in the home and in schools- for poor emotional health leads to poor choices; Poor choices lead to things such as violence. Addiction is not caused by one single factor, we know genetics, environment, and psychosocial factors can be involved. Violence is a choice and is what people with poor emotional health believe to be conflict resolution. Everyone measures success on academic grades and career status, but does anyone measure success as the ability to minimize poor choices due to the lack of emotional health? When we finally recognize emotional education as more important than academic education, we may finally experience peace on earth. What good is it to be at the top half of your class if you’re an asshole? Or at best, emotionally immature. As a therapist, I constantly and persistently strive to see every scenario as an emotional reflex to trauma. Trauma is not always some sort of horrible event or abusive treatment; it can also be a result of being spoiled. I have seen extreme cruelty done from people who suffered from abuse just as much as those who “suffered” from being spoiled. What I mean by “emotional health” is recognizing and processing emotions appropriately. “Appropriate” entails not using selfishness to get one’s way, passive-aggressive communication, codependent behavior, defensiveness, seeking validation through others, emotional blackmail, attacks of character instead of request for changed behavior, stonewalling, dissociation, name-calling, threats used as leverage, and taking responsibility for one’s thoughts and actions. #therapy #therapist #psychotherapy #psychotherapist #traumainformed #traumarecovery #wisconsin #madisonwisconsin #madisonwi #instablog #instablogger #instapic #addiction #instapics #instalike #instaphoto #emotionalabuse #emotionalhealth #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #abuse #mentaldisorder #mentalillness #emotionalintelligence #mentalhealthblogger #violence #emotionalhealing #education #lmft #instaphotos

I love teaching with my biffle so much. We just worked with our young ladies from 2 group homes—this is a weekly class for us. These kids are old beyond their years, too much coming at them, too much to have lived through, and yet they are practicing and asking questions and finding those pockets of peace. Two came to me after class and asked why their legs were shaking, so I took time to talk to them and feed their curiosity. They shared gratitude and most important thing of all, the whole group reported a positive shift in how they felt. One of them told us we are best friend goals. Both of us have so much love for these kids. Sometimes they are rough and tumble and push boundaries, and even in those moments, they deserve love.

Often in the world of trauma informed care, we get stuck on the way trauma changes folks in the negative. Here's a truth: healing also changes you and your children and your children's children forever and ever. Epigenetics can help us better understand how to make healing and positive outcomes permeate your entire genome. You can create change in yourself and future generations to your very core. I love this infographic from @harvard

Last week, I (Flora Lark) became Trauma-Informed Certified by the Community Resilience Initiative. I will be taking the Trauma Supportive Course next week—and I can’t wait!! I see so many connections and parallels from the course/certification to the work JonaNoelle and I have been doing as #thefiretigers It was so encouraging, affirming and gave me a different context to put the experience we give our audience. There is a free community event that Master Trainer Rick Griffin of the CRI will be giving on March 28th—link to register at the end of this post. #traumainformed #purpose #service #mentalhealth #hope #healing #thisiswhatidoforfun #powerofwe #community #charlottesville #cville #resilience You can register here: http://events.r20.constantcontact.com/register/event?oeidk=a07eg32hhis59c7e0e1&llr=e8v9audab

Currently working on developing routines in my otherwise crazy, three jobs + full time student life. Actually sticking to my skin care one each night! Accomplishments 💁🏽‍♀️
———
“Routines can help us feel that we can count on ourselves—can count on the world. Yes, it is true that you can’t predict everything, but you can give yourself a few things that you can mostly count on.”
———
“Trauma and big loss can throw us off balance, can make us feel like there is nothing solid in the world, nothing we can count on. And healing can stir up that same sense of disequilibrium, and loss of balance, loss of knowing what you can count on. And having a few well placed routines can help you feel more solid, give you sea legs on the boat of healing, give you a sense of the horizon again.”
-Gretchen L. Schmelzer, PhD

Okay. I’ve been thinking/talking a lot about two things: 1. Children have the ability to consent, yet do not have the power to always act on/defend their consent. 2. Advocacy (for my students, for other children at my center, for children in general). Lately, this has come up a lot for me (in my thinking, in talks, in different situations). So, I wanted to do some sharing here, and learn from others. // Because children *can* consent but either have the defending power in their decisions taken from them and/or cannot fully understand their choices, consent for them is not complete. They rely so much on others’ choices for them. This can be a good thing (to keep babies safe) or a harmful thing. But, I tell myself this each day: because I have power to make decisions for my babes, I should always consider my intentions behind my decisions. ALWAYS. This is not something to take lightly. Children *are* people, even while still in the womb, y’all! And then, going off of that strain of thought: I am DONE letting others’ opinions of how I do what I do with my students (or, children not technically “in my care”) dictate my actions and choices. I am confident in my own responses, actions, choices with my students. When other people choose to pass judgement on those things, make remarks about how my students “aren’t learning” or other similar statements, I do at first take it to heart. But then, I remember to be confident in my knowledge of what I do and why I do it. And now, I’m pushing myself to not just reframe my thinking in those moments, but to also vocalize my thoughts. To vocalize why I choose to not ‘punish’ my students, etc. And then to tell others in contact with my students that that is unacceptable (and then, to take that opportunity to share with others what I know:how to respond in certain situations, etc.). I take full responsibility for what goes on in my classroom. Now, I’m also working to advocate more each day for my students. To speak up when I know something is wrong. // How do you advocate for children you spend time with? I want to know!! I’m always learning, in this regard. I won’t ever stop. It is *that* important.
