One of the things most survivors ask at some point is “Where was God?” and, rightfully so. IF God is real and all powerful and you believe in the idea of a good and loving God, WHERE was He when you were being abused? It is a question worth asking and one that deserves some honest conversation. Join host,...

Healing Addiction, Part 9: Relationship Addiction

1/23/2015
More
Relationship addiction happens when one person invests themselves too deeply in another person’s life. A lack of a strong personal identity and the need to please others can create obsessive patterns that keep you from creating healthy attachments to others. Could there be an unconscious belief that you have the ability to do what you think others want or expect and that will earn you the love and acceptance that you desire? Learn about the 7 traits of relationship addicts, the kind of...

Healing Addiction, Part 7- The High Cost of Addiction

12/19/2014
More
Addiction costs over 500,000 annually. The cost to families and individuals is incalculable. Why are we, as individuals and as a society, willing to pay this kind of price to continue in the addictive patterns that flourish in our culture? Addiction has nearly become an accepted way of life. Are you willing to continue to pay the price for your addiction, or are you ready to do something different? Listen to the story of Mike Reis, former sex addict and alcoholic, addiction recovery coach,...

Healing Addiction, Part 6 : Understanding Food Addiction

12/5/2014
More
Addictions are not just about chemicals and alcohol. You can be addicted to just about anything. Food addiction is a tough one to beat. It’s not like you can just stop eating! Comfort food is flagrantly flashed in front of you in about 50% of commercials. Just about every celebration is accompanied by the smells and sights of high carb, low nutrition selections. How do you learn to say no to this most acceptable of addictions? First, says Dr. Jim Wilder, understand the unmet need behind...

Healing Addiction, part 5- Addiction and Joy

11/7/2014
More
Who doesn’t want more joy in their life? The fact is that low joy levels are the best indicator that someone is at high risk for an addictive lifestyle. The higher your level of joy is, the less vulnerable you are to getting caught up in the addictive cycle. Building the capacity for increased joy and the skills needed to live a joyful life are both possible. Join us as Ed Khouri brings hope for healing from, and staying free from addiction in his third and last episode on the Healing...

Healing Addiction, Part 4- Addiction and Attachment

10/24/2014

Relationships are the stuff of our deepest pain and joy. They can leave gaping holes that cause great vulnerability to addiction, and they are also a large part of healing addictions. Ed Khouri shares a fascinating piece of research that links trauma through early attachment problems to dopamine receptor density that affects the ability to regulate pain, pleasure, and emotions. That sets the bar for the level of relational joy in people’s lives. Propensity for addiction increases radically...

Healing Addiction, Part 1- Child Sexual Abuse and Addiction

9/12/2014

Sometimes the memories are too much to hold inside. Sometimes the pain just gets too big. Medicating our pain as survivors of child sexual abuse is one way to survive. But as long as we are addicted, we will never thrive. Addiction kills relationships, careers, healing and spiritual growth. Addiction takes the life out of us and returns the destruction of all we hold dear in exchange for killing the pain. David Pittman, director of Together We Heal, knows both the pain of abuse AND the...

Healing the Inner Child, Part 10- Neurological Reorganization

7/11/2014
More
Do you struggle with “stuck” emotions? Do you ask yourself, “Why did I do that?” When we suffer trauma as children our brains are often unable to develop to their fullest potential. Neurological Reorganization (NR) is a movement based therapy that creates efficient connections between the brain and various systems of the body to help people reach their highest potential. NR uses the reflexes that we all have programmed into our brain to allow us to relearn how to do what it needs to do. We...

Healing the Inner Child, Part 9 Attachment Treatment

6/27/2014
More
Does the thought of developing bonded relationships cause your stomach to flip flop? Are the words “trust” and “vulnerability” on your DGT (Don’t Go There) list? Forming bonded relationships that bring joy is the most important skill in life, but one that is not imparted to many children. Attachment problems result from abuse or neglect perpetrated consciously or through unavoidable circumstances. When parents do not attach in a healthy manner to their kids, problems develop. The inability...

Have you ever felt happy and sad at the same time? Wanted to do something and not wanted to in the same moment? If so, then you have experienced what Internal Family Systems calls the sub-personalities that we all have inside. Each has its own perspective, interests, memories and viewpoints, and sometimes they are in harmony but sometimes they conflict with one another. IFS believes that every “part” has an important role to play and can be productive and healthy. They can also take on...

Healing the Inner Child, Part 7: Share Immanuel

5/30/2014
More
In the difficult spaces of our childhood traumas, we often are disconnected from the awareness of God’s presence. We may even think that He has abandoned us during those experiences. It is then that we are most vulnerable to believing things that are not true about ourselves, others, God, and the world we live in. Share Immanuel works as an incredibly effective means for healing and recovery as well as restoring peace for individuals, couples and families. It is based on the belief that God...

Healing the Inner Child, Part 6: EMDR

5/23/2014

Can your brain heal itself? The brain is created to naturally move towards mental health. Sometimes a block or imbalance is created by the impact of a traumatic experience and causes us great suffering. Once that block is removed, however, healing naturally resumes. EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a therapy that helps people to heal from the problems caused by trauma. Studies show that by using this tool, people can experience the benefits of psychotherapy that once...

Healing the Inner Child, Part 5 Brain Skill Training

5/16/2014

What brain skills did you miss out on learning as a child? In a healthy family our brains receive training to provide the full range of ability to deal with life's experiences. In the midst of a traumatic childhood, these skills are often not passed along from a parent or caregiver. When we suffer from arrested development due to childhood trauma there is great hope to still learn those skills! Careful study of how the brain is trained led Chris and Jen Coursey to 19 brain-based relational...

Have you ever noticed that you can feel angry and rejecting towards yourself and yet have compassion for yourself all within the same 10 minutes? How can we have such opposing thoughts. If you were traumatized as a child, it is likely that you have wounded parts, judgmental parts, and compassionate parts, all held in the same brain.

How do you root out the lies that were planted in your head when you were traumatized as a child? Most of us come to believe things that are not true about ourselves in the midst of childhood trauma and then carry that belief unconsciously, perhaps for the rest of our lives. That belief is what creates triggers that sabotage us in our relationships, make us vulnerable to addictions and self-harm, and keep us from thriving in life. What would you say if I told you there is a fast and...
