Tonight's special guest is Caroline DeBolt from Lake Worth, Florida, who tells us her mission is to facilitate emotional and spiritual healing, advocacy, growth and connection to those parents, children, and extended family members experiencing High Conflict Divorce/Alienation. Caroline says, "I believe in working for healing and change, not fighting against the problem." Her mother was bi-polar, narcissistic and verbally abusive, and shamed her to the point of not feeling good enough. Her father was very domineering and emotionally unavailable. "I have always been a sensitive being which made it that much more difficult." She goes on, "What I have found is that it doesn't matter how big or small the abuse or trauma is, we are affected by it especially if we are sensitive emotionally and spiritually." Recently she came to discover just how much trauma affects the body. "It literally changes the brain," she says, noting, "Research has been done to show that trauma in childhood affects the pituitary which is the master gland in the body. For me it is now affecting the thyroid." Caroline now knows that a lot of the physical stuff she's going through is from not completely working through her emotions. "Depression and anxiety are huge. It is very obvious to me it begins in childhood or birth as the first trauma in our society." By providing support groups online and in person she wants to bring parents, children and family member to a point of healing and balance so they can find their purpose and potentially advocate for others going through this in order to change the systems that are broken. Caroline says, "Be the change you want to see in the world."
