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.

Welcome to The Healing Place Podcast! Thank you for joining me as I engage in a deep and powerful conversation with Chris Haughee about trauma-informed ministry practices and his experience as a chaplain to the children of Intermountain, a residential facility for severely emotionally disturbed children in Helena, Montana.
I had the honor of viewing the film before speaking with them on air and found myself moved to tears. I connected with this film and the featured caregivers not only as a trauma-survivor, but as someone who has worked in the mental health field and school settings as a caregiver. So much appreciation and positive support sent to all of those who have answered the calling of caregiver.
A huge thank you to Vic and Rodney for sharing their film and insights with us all!
Thank you for joining me for my conversation with Leslie Peters RN. Leslie and I discuss the soon to be launched Heart Talks and Leslie Peters websites, along with an insightful discussion on trauma and trauma-recovery through sharing stories, as well as women’s empowerment after trauma. Check out Leslie’s current Women Not Alone: Conversations That Matter site.
We connected through the ACEs Connection online Community: a movement to prevent ACEs, heal trauma & build resilience. We would love to have you join us at ACEs Connection.
Teri recently conversed via a phone interview with published poet, Phil (last name omitted per his request), regarding his healing journey through childhood abuse, his youth spent in a sanitorium, a D.I.D. diagnosis, and the healing power of writing poetry. Please join us for this fascinating and hauntingly beautiful tale of triumph over trauma.
Teri is excited to have the authentic, brilliant and soulful light worker, Beth Williams, on air for a conversation about authenticity, anxiety, mental health, coping skills, empathic gifts, being a light worker, connection, healthy uncomfortable vs. unhealthy uncomfortable, and so much more.
Thanks for joining us for this “conversation between friends”!
Tonight we have an extra-special one and a half hour show! Due to 3 weather-related cancellations last week, we decided not to post a podcast last Friday. Therefore, we are making up for that and posting a double show tonight. Yay! So, sit back and enjoy our “conversation between friends” with trauma guru, Melissa Adamchik, Executive Director of the Tristate Trauma Network.
We are happy you have tuned in to The Healing Place Podcast. We discuss the fast-growing framework of trauma-informed care, the mission of The Tristate Trauma Network, along with other trauma-centered subjects.
Teri is so excited to welcome the brilliant and beautiful Paulette Tomasson via a Skype interview. Paulette discusses her vast therapy modalities from experiential to equine therapy and so much more. We discuss trauma, resilience/drive to survive, the blossoming of self-reflective men overcoming their sex addictions, internet pornography, critical need for parental controls on all devices, and embracing/celebrating our “note in the symphony”!
