14 January Q&A Livestream #CPTSDchat on the topic of “Books on Self-Care for Adult Survivors of ACEs (Adverse Childhood Experiences)” This conversation we are having during this video may be especially helpful for those who were abused or neglected from the ages of 0-8 years of age by a narcissistic parent or caregiver. Psychological abuse, coercion, emotional neglect, and all forms of child abuse are extremely damaging to the human psyche and should be treated my licensed medical professionals. YouTube is not a replacement for medical care. Athena is here to provide trauma-informed peer support. Please seek professional care. #BecauseWeAreWorthIt #ACEs
HEALING IS POSSIBLE. THERE IS HOPE.
*Live Daily Calls* for as little as $50 per month: https://CPTSDfoundation.org Your membership includes a full library of archived calls, written resources, chat transcripts for every call on all topics related to recovery from complex trauma, narcissistic abuse, and adverse childhood experiences.
All credit for this powerfully healing discussion should be directed toward YOU-our global community of brave PTSD, CPTSD, Narcissistic Abuse and Adverse Childhood Experiences Survivors who show up here every week to heal and support one another.
When we first realize we are living with CPTSD symptoms or learn that we are a “survivor” of adverse childhood experiences, we usually have a period of time when we feel all alone or like we will never make it through the pain.
Tonight’s discussion is for anyone who learns about their trauma, has new memories or just feels all alone in their healing journey. You are not alone anymore.
Welcome to our safe community.
You are welcome here. We believe you. There is support here. Be kind to yourself. Go at your own pace. Breathe. Breathe again. And… know the pain you are feeling today is temporary. It gets better. We promise.
When certain topics come to mind or are of particular interest to you, please post them below in the comments or send them to info(at)cptsdfoundation(dot)org and I will add them to my editorial calendar.
Weekly, I will be answering your questions, sharing practical tips and strategies to help you heal from the debilitating aftereffects of narcissistic abuse and adverse childhood experiences. CPTSD symptoms can be very paralyzing. Please take it slow and know we are all here to support you. Thank you for your participation and encouraging support toward all other community members.
Again, this video is live and interactive.
This is Weekly Q&A. If you are unable to attend live please take the info you find helpful and leave the rest.
