I was so very pleased to share an insightful conversation with Kristina Bechtel regarding her journey through a personal history of early childhood trauma, a discussion on her symptoms surfacing, and her eventual healing journey. Kristina started her career working with the homeless population and has now turned her attention to mental health social work and sharing the trauma-informed care message with helping professions through presentations. Please listen in to Kristina’s powerful story and her passion to spread the trauma-informed care message of hope and healing.
You can contact Kristina for more information on her presentations at:

The Prevelance of Secondary Trauma in Helping Professionals: How We Keep Ourselves Safe
I was excited to connect with Teri Barila, Executive Director of the Community Resilience Initiative and Resilience Trumps Aces organization. On this episode of the podcast, Teri shares her insights with us in regards to the importance of building resilience in children as well as those who have ACEs (adverse childhood experiences) history. We touch on brain development, community impact, and so much more.
The CRI vision and mission are listed on their website as:
All young people thrive and parents raise their children with consistency and nurturance to develop lasting resilience in the community as a whole.
Mobilizing the community through dialogue to radically reduce the number of adverse childhood experiences while building resilience and a more effective service delivery system.
