SPECIAL TOPIC night -- Tonight's show will be a Discussion/Workshop on building emotional and physical RESILIENCE. Resilience, simply put, means "bouncing back" from difficult experiences and includes the ability to adapt in the face of trauma, adversity, and stress. Disclosing and beginning to address our abuse can also be traumatizing, and require physical and emotional energy to cope. Building our resilience is something we can actively do to provide ourselves with the energy we will need. At the same time, building resilience will begin to repair our bodies and minds from the damage we have suffered as a result of our abuse. Please see: (1) Characteristics Of Emotional Resilience & 10 Ways To Build Resilience, (2) What Are Personal Boundaries?, (3) Table Of Healthy/Unhealthy Personal Boundaries ~~ The moderator will be Jacque LaFountaine RN, retired, who has been actively recovering from childhood abuse and trauma for more than 25 years. "When I started therapy, I learned that childhood abuse and trauma was affecting every area of my life, but there was very little information on what needed to be addressed or how to address them." This series of shows will give us an opportunity to share information and experience with each other as we continue to move forward on our healing journey.
