In this episode we will talk about a topic that came up during my time at “live from America Podcast “ last weekend, which turned from therapeutic abuse to a conversation about C-PTSD.We talked - VERY briefly - about what the therapy for PTSD should look like and I feel like I didn't do it proper justice and wanted to explain it better, because I do think it is very important to clear things up.We first talk about what it should feel like, which type of therapy, then goals of therapy and finally what the base structure looks like.Topic: C-PTSD (instead of therapeutic abuse) and WARNING: I talk relatively at the start about what types of things were done to me. Video https://youtu.be/8Q-wqXJQ9mIAudio  https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/live-from-america-podcast/id1159634513?mt=2Transcript: https://www.johannadraconis.com/podcast/episode-109/ Contact: contactme@johannadraconis.com        Therapy:  https://www.johannadraconis.com/therapy/

When you consider that there are over 3 million reported incidents of domestic violence every year in the United States, mostly against women, you know we have a problem. Here is the bottom line: spousal abuse of any kind is prohibited by Jewish law. Those authorities who "fuled" that wives may be beaten by their husbands are offering their opinions, often influenced by the broader culture in which they lived—but those "rulings" have no support in the Torah or the Talmud.Support the show (http://www.shammai.org)

In 2018, my first book was published. The book is called, "Killing My Father Then Finding Him." The theme of the book is about how I came to forgive both of my parents for the abuse and neglect I felt all through my childhood. I hid my upbringing from my friends in school. I masked it well because today I read a short piece one of my childhood friends wrote about me and why he was buying the book. If you are holding onto pain from your past, I encourage you to do the work on yourself to heal. I did, and I promise it isn't easy, but nothing worthwhile ever is.

Hi Stefan,I am a stay at home mom to a 3 1/2 year old girl. I have a wonderfully supportive husband and a daughter that is smart, loving and very challenging to me.I'm writing to you after having a fit of rage where I find myself saying 'I don't want to be a mother anymore.' Even typing these words I start to feel immense sadness and cry because I know my best self doesn't believe that. I've had these fits more often over the past couple months and they almost seem to get worse. They happen after being with my daughter when she is repeatedly disobeying my wishes to stop climbing on furniture, yelling or hitting. I become overly frustrated and angry and will throw or kick something so hard that it breaks. There have been times when I feel like hitting my child but do not, instead I grab and or forcibly pick up my daughter in a way that is scary to her and is also scary to me. I don't know how else to explain it other than describing these fits as demonic possession. There have been many times I've been able to see myself getting frustrated and I take a deep breath or go for a walk. After I overcome one of these potential fits I believe I've solved the problem and I say to myself, 'that was hard but also kinda easy', only to be caught off guard by this anger again. I was raised by a mother who physically and verbally abused me and I don't want to turn into her. I would like to know better ways on how to manage and eventually stop myself from going to a place of rage when situations get difficult. My ACE score is a 4 which seems low but the lasting effects of the abuse have been difficult to overcome. I realize a huge component of this is confronting my mother...for which I am terrified to do so. I am so ashamed to admit to this behavior because I have listened to your show quite often over the past 4 years, especially to the shows where you cover parenting (which is the root of most of the world's problems). I have found your advice to be very profound and helpful to me over the years. I hear you speak of your daughter and your relationship with her and, quite frankly, I would love a relationship like that with my daughter.I have gone through some therapy which has helped illuminate some of the inner workings of my subconscious and shadow. I still talk to a therapist once every 6 mo. (which I realize is pathetically seldom) and read up on respectful parenting but have a hard time committing to the hard work (which sounds like another problem). I would extremely appreciate a conversation or any advice you may have for me.

On August 13, 2020, a 911 call summoned first responders to an apartment in Elk River, Minnesota, where 8-year-old Autumn Hallow was pronounced dead at the scene. Her father, Brett Hallow, and her stepmother, Sarah Hallow, told police they found Autumn partially submerged in the bathtub, but their story fell apart immediately. The little girl was emaciated and frail, covered in injuries, and missing patches of hair, and she had clearly been dead for at least several hours before the 911 call was placed. The following day, both Brett and Sarah were arrested.In this episode, I will tell you a story of parental alienation, a mother's desperate attempts to save her children from their father's abusive household, and the failure of CPS and the Elk River Police Department to intervene in a dire situation that culminated in the death of a child. I will also tell you the story of a beautiful, bright little girl with unmatched joy for life who was known for her kindness, creativity, thoughtfulness, and determination and whose life was slowly and agonizingly stolen by two people who should have protected her but chose instead to torture her to death.This is part one of the heartbreaking story of Autumn Hallow.My sources for this episode were the Minneapolis Star Tribune, PEOPLE, KSTP 5 Eyewitness News, CBS Local - Minnesota, Bring Me the News, Dare's Funeral & Cremation Services, the Mirror, the Scottish Sun, KARE11, Facebook, KNSI radio, Lakeland PBS, the Elk River Star-News, Kelsey Kruse, and the Minnesota Department of Corrections website.Photos related to today's episode can be viewed on Facebook and Instagram:Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/sufferthelittlechildrenpodInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/sufferthelittlechildrenpodYou can also follow the podcast on: Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/c/sufferthelittlechildrenpodcast Twitter: https://www.twitter.com/STLCpodTumblr: https://www.tumblr.com/blog/sufferthelittlechildrenpodPinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/sufferthelittlechildrenpodTikTok: https://www.tiktok.com/@STLCpod My Linktree is available here: https://linktr.ee/stlcpod Visit the podcast's web page at https://www.sufferthelittlechildrenpod.com.

Let's face it. Being a teen ager isn't easy. We've all been there. But imagine facing the unthinkable at such an early age. A deadly accident that leaves you blaming yourself and receiving little to no support in order to heal and grow. That was Lis Cashin's story. An early childhood sporting event turned tragic and left her with feelings that no child should ever face. And the road to recovery was a challenging one, to say the least.   But, somehow…resiliency of the human spirit got her through. But it was the determination and a desire to be better that created the space to heal. Today, her work as a speaker, author and mental health consultant is giving others the tools to heal and find their joy because as she puts it, “happiness is a choice”. On this episode of HIListically Speaking, Lis not only shares her inspiring story of trauma to triumph, but leaves listeners with essential emotional health hacks that everyone should have in their mental health tool box to live a happy and healthy life.  Connect with Lis on LinkedIn Facebook @LisCashinTalks Twitter and Instagram at @LisCashin   You can also download a copy of her 15 minute well-being hacks to get you through challenging times.  When it comes to healing, Havening Techniques can put the power of active emotional well-being in your own hands.

www.freedomain.comHi Stefan,This is the most difficult message I have ever had to write, but after being a listener of yours for 4 years now I finally have to accept that there is both continuity and a cause to the endless failures that seem to shape my life thus far. I have an ACE score of 7, although I do believe that special consideration should be given to the context of the abuse, in my case this would surely increase my score.Violence, incest, abandonment, neglect, torture and betrayal are all major themes in my family history. Each time I listen to a freedomain call-in show a light is shone on to either a suppressed or repressed memory of mine, and it becomes increasingly clear that I am actively, perhaps subconsciously refusing to succeed in life. Most importantly, I am beginning to understand why no one has ever intervened to stop my self destruction, and even more terrifying is that their existence depends on my destruction.I am a British born West African male in my early 30s. I am tall, handsome, intelligent, charismatic, athletic and curious, but despite these gifts I have nothing of value to show for my time on this earth. I have bounced around from one addiction to another, from recreational drug use to sugar binges. I suffer from insomnia, chronic overthinking and crippling self doubt. I have never loved or been loved, but most disturbing to me is that I have never been loving to myself. I have dropped out of university twice, college three times, and procrastination has been my only consistent friend. After many years of inaction I am now afraid to dream, because each failure I add to my internal resume gradually erodes my sense of self worth and efficacy.As a child I would curse God for creating me and forcing me into existence, I thought it was a sick joke that he would make me live a life of suffering. I often wished I could snap my fingers and end my own life. I had no real friends, we were discouraged from socialising outside of the immediate family, it was school, home and church.My earliest memories were of being beaten by mother with the heel of her winter boot, being abruptly sent to live with an old woman relative in west Africa, and not seeing either my mother or father for months after that, all without any explanation at all! I have never had an intimate conversation with my mother, I have no memory of ever being hugged by her, I often wonder if she could mention 2 things that I enjoy doing. I have a memory of being woken up in the middle of the night by my mother and told to scrub my body in the shower with a soap from west Africa that had been prayed on and that would remove any evil curses. I could go on and on Stefan.The true darkness of my family and childhood is buried deep, and even to think about it is to risk too much. The perpetrators and victims have families of their own now and this is why I haven't contacted you before today. I feel as though I am trapped in a cult of secrecy and shame. I truly believe that the victims in my family are quietly and politely dying inside as we look at each other for permission to cry out! But of course , there will never be permission. I am frozen in time, frozen by shame, frozen by fear, Frozen. Help Please Stefan.I am currently studying for a master's degree so I can be available at anytime of day and on any day of the week.My questions is, why haven't I been able to start a life of my own? And what must I do to escape the gravity of the past?Thank you Stefan.

Oh boy. This is an especially weird one. Sometimes truth really is stranger than fiction. In the summer of 1965, John C. Lilly, a medic and neuroscientist, and his assistant Margaret Howe, a young lady who just happened to live nearby, would set up a partially-flooded house on St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands, where Margaret would spend nearly twenty-four hours a day with a young bottlenose dolphin named Peter. Where she would have sex with this dolphin. Why? To help it learn English. Why? So that the dolphin could teach Dr. Lilly how to communicate telepathically so he could converse with aliens already controlling his life subconsciously. I told you it was weird. I laughed so much researching today's topic.
