Day 10: While my job may be overwhelming at times learning everything, I am so beyond grateful for the job I have. I found my job a month after graduation, it’s in my hometown, and it’s working with the population I love💙 #100happydays

Racism is not just a behavior, but a criminal behavior. This is one of those things that is the truth, but hard to swallow for many. I call systemic racism, within the context of interpersonal racism, intergenerational racist perpetration. This criminal behavior, that is legal in the US, and many other countries, is not legal in the UK. Slavery and the genocide of people, based on race, could not exist without this criminal behavior. This is the reason why this behavior fits so well with Donald Trump and other leaders who lead in a dictatorship-style — because it is criminal behavior. Unfortunately, this behavior has been normalized throughout society. For many white liberals, they want to learn how to no longer allow this narcissistic behavior continue to affect their interracial relationships, which is completely understandable. It is, absolutely, a matter of recognizing the perpetrator from within, and then, learning to connect this to one’s trauma in order to grieve this part of oneself that is not in line with one’s values. Now, I am in favor of rehabilitating and reforming the perpetrators who want and desire help. This is where social justice and healing intertwine. #racism #antiracism #rebel #maverick #socialwork #changeagent #socialjustice #change #transformation #psychology #behavior #trauma #feminism #activism #traumainformedantiracism #poc #qtpoc #whitepsychology #culturalpsychology

There is SO much happening in the world, in our local and global communities, that I’ve wanted to post about, but I just felt hopeless. Every hour some next level BS occurs that threatens basic human rights. Like basic...can I exist here? Can I be safe here? Can I get access to a doctor when I need medical attention? Can I make decisions about my own damn body here?  I’ve been silent because I’ve felt paralyzed. Today I taught my first masters level class for #socialwork and this is my new way to explore ways of finding freedom and peace and healing for a world that is cracking. The students are amazing and I’m in love with the vibrancy of #fayettevillestateuniversity  Professor Darling...it has a damn good ring to it. Dr. Darling will sound even better. New generation of #socialworker - watch out. We’re coming to make some damn changes.

At summer art school, the facilitators taught simple skills that can be found useful at any point in the future. With their help, the children explored their own abilities and were able to reproduce what they learnt. This proved to be useful as they built the confidence to do the pieces on their own.

It’s scary to leave what’s familiar, even when it’s painful or dysfunctional, but there are brighter horizons to discover if we just take the risk. Thanks for sharing, @half_full_lemonade!

So this was actually a really interesting exercise? It's absolutely crazy how much color influences the arbitrary distinctions we make in society. Thoughts?

I'm nervous, excited and thrilled that God has chosen this path for me. I had no idea I'd be walking down this road a few years after the assault. I am overwhelmingly grateful for the passion He has bestowed upon me. It was a huge trade off: exchanging pain for purpose and passion. 💕 Please keep me in prayer that I will continue to find favor, to succeed academically, and that God will place me on platforms for HIS glory 💕💕💕 #donnagrobinson #author #speaker #mentalhealth #socialwork #psychology #counseling #therapy #education #passion #purpose #newseason #destination #empoweringpeople

The countdown is well and truely on. Five more days of placement! These last few days will look something like this...
.
✍🏼 finishing and/or handing over tasks on my workload planner
🧚🏼‍♀️ wrapping up the supervision relationship with my field educator and external supervisor
📑 complete and submit my final placement report
👩🏻‍💻 start writing my ‘placement summary of learning’ essay
🗣 attend a team meeting
🍕 farewell lunch for myself, the other student and my field educator (that’s another story that I won’t go into)
📚 collect all of my things and put the digital resources I’ve collected onto a USB stick
🧼 clean my desk
🗝 hand in my keys etc
.
In hindsight, this has been the longest and shortest four months of my life! (apart from maternity leave life haha, that will always be the exception 😉)

EVERYONE DISSOCIATES. We can all identify a time or two that we drove to work and didn’t remember how we got there. That’s normal.
•
We put dissociation on a CONTINUUM from daydreaming or “spacing out” for a few seconds to a “fugue state” where people can live and function seemingly normally for entire months or even years of their lives without being present or making any memories.
•
DISSOCIATION IS ADAPTIVE during trauma. A person living in a war zone still needs to function, so their body OVERRIDES fear responses. A rape survivor goes into freeze mode to PROTECT from further bodily threat. A child “goes away” when their parent beats them because they STILL RELY on that parent for support.
•
After the traumatic episode subsides, dissociation is no longer adaptive. Our bodies hold onto MALADAPTIVE COPING STRATEGIES until we process and release them. Working with a therapist whom you feel safe with can help.

When I provide chaplaincy services to a family planning a memorial I always take the children aside to explain the event & describe the sad emotions they will observe & perhaps experience themselves. I always try to take a short walk with them to an area where there’s a staircase. So many people have heard of “the stages of grief” so I use the stairs to explain the steps are different “feelings” - sometimes you experience a feeling for a short time but sometimes you end up going back to that feeling many times. This is the universal experience of adults & children when we lose a family member, friend, or pet. Finally I let them know it’s ok if their parents are sad & crying at the memorial - it’s just a measure of the love they had for the person they’re remembering at the service. 🙏

WHY IS MY CHILD ANXIOUS? ➡️ --aNXIETY IN CHILDREN AND ADOLESCENTS HAve MANY DIFFERENT CAUSES, INCLUDING BIOLOGICAL FACTORS (THINGS IN YOUR BODY), PSYCHOLOGICAL FACTORS (THOUGHTS AND FEELINGS), AND SOCIAL FACTORS (LIKE SCHOOL AND FRIENDS). ➡️--MOST OFTEN, AN ANXIETY DISORDER RESULTS FROM A COMBINATION OF A CHILD'S "SENSITIVE PERSONALITY" WITH OTHER THINGS THAT ADD UP OVER TIME, PARTICULARLY EARLY FEELINGS OF BEING OUT OF CONTROL AND SPECIFIC NEGATIVE EXPERIENCES.

1️⃣ SENSITIVE PERSONALITY: ➡️means that some children tend to be more easily worried, frightened, upset, or sad than others.  they react more strongly to bad situations or to objects and information that seem threatening. A child with sensitive personality has an increased risk of negative emotions throughout life, which can lead to anxiety disorders and cometimes depression.

2️⃣SENSE OF CONTROL: ➡️--Children who have a sensitive personality and who feel they cannot control the things that happen in their lives are more likely to have a negative response to bad experiences. this sense of things being out of the child's control can be aggravated by situations that limit a child's opportunities to experience the world, to master challenges, and to get help when necessary. ➡️--A child needs to develop a sense that he or she has some degree of control over bad situations, either by making them go away or by learning skills to cope with them .

3️⃣BAD EXPERIENCES: ➡️ In a child with a sensitive personality, bad experiences can shape the child's anxiety in particular ways.
For example, a sensitive child who is stung by a bee might develop phobia of bees. If the child is teased by a classmate, social anxiety might develop. if the child is treated harshly by a stranger, separation anxiety may result.

When going to grad school you are entering a room full of stranger. You’re learning how to make friends then you stick around long enough to form a tribe. You learn that friendship are cultivated by setting things up and showing up. When you set up events the goal isn't make sure everyone comes but the goals is make friends with whoever comes. Because over time it will get bigger and you will have that one on one with each new person. Each time you talk it gets deeper. You'll realize that if you miss an event here and there or dont show up at all by the time of graduation you will feel alone within the program. Our cohort is creating time outside the classroom to hangout. In that space we are being intentional about having kid friendly events so that all people can show up. I'm not sure who will all be friends by the time we graduate but what I do know is that most folks plan to stay in the area after we get our masters. So as people plug into the tribe they are ensuring they have a network when they graduate. It’s not what you know it’s who you know, and who you know is dependent on the time you invested. Because@when you’re ready to leave your job, these are the people you will want to call. Networking is the art of making connection before you need them.

Expectations gives the biggest heartbreak when things don’t go your way! Sometimes having these general understandings allows you to lower your expectations and not get hurt. It also helps to reduce your codependency on others, allowing for self-sufficiency.

Repost from @kaha.mind -  The misinformation about taking pills for a mental health condition comes from ignorance. We often hear people say and see posts on the internet with messages to the effect of, go for a run instead of taking a pill. But here’s the thing, a lot of the information out there does not come from credible sources. A credible source in this case, is your doctor. A lot of mental health conditions require medical intervention. And there is absolutely NO shame in taking pills and doing what is best for you. So when someone tells you that they’re taking pills, hold off that impulse of judgement, listen and be supportive. Let’s end pill shaming and try to build a community that is kind and safe and inclusive.

Momentos que não voltam, momentos que uma câmera congela pra vida, momentos que sempre estarão no nosso pensamento.
Reencontros, carinho, amor, cuidado. O trabalho humanitário e social é tudo isso também. Não é só dor, não é só choro, não é perda, não é só desgraça, o que mtas vezes só é retratado, (reiterando aqui que é importante e sempre será falar dos problemas, causas e dores, conflitos etc) mas é amor, é alegria, é compaixão, é acima de tudo trocas, aprendizados e crescimento. É sorriso no rosto, é se manter erguido e o outro de pé, apesar de tudo! Ao erguer o outro vc tb está se mantendo, nas suas dores, medos, um vai apoiando o outro sem nem mesmo saber. O sorriso é natural, a alergia se mantém, o amor nasce. 
Registro lindo de uma das mulheres que conheço, que mais se dedica ao social: @mjsaccon ❤️🙏✨ #humanitarian #humanity #volunteer #trabalhovoluntario #igers #haiti #weareone #love #amor #socialwork #humanidade

Exhausted/⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Relationships are to be reciprocal and bidirectional.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A one way relationship becomes exhausting to the point of frustration.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Boundary setting is 🔑⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We often don’t set clear boundaries until we reach our tipping points...which can make setting new boundaries in an aged or several year long relationship difficult.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
New boundary settings can be hard to adjust to, causing confusion, hurt feelings and uncertainty in a relationship.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Before you find yourself stating “I’m not okay with these things anymore”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Do your best to make it clear from the beginning where your boundaries are.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Boundary setting requires:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1. A certain level of self esteem and self awareness: you need to know what you’re ok with and believe that your boundaries are deserving of respect.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2. Care for, compassion for the other person or persons in the relationship: boundaries still need to allow room for vulnerability, intimacy and trust.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3. An ability to communicate effectively and compromise where necessary: people aren’t mind readers, be able to voice boundaries clearly and directly and be willing to compromise where you can...again relationships must be reciprocal!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Judgement, criticism, and dismissive comments are the norm in deep grief, not the exception. Sure, most people have "good intentions," but the difference between their intentions and the actual impact of their words is vast.
•
The thing is, people think the whole point of grief is to get out of it as quickly as possible. You're supposed to become wiser, more compassionate, and truly understand what's important. •
Our cultural ideas are so deeply embedded that it can be hard to describe how it feels to be on the receiving end of what passes for grief support. •
There is so much work to do to change this grief-averse culture. We need a whole bunch of tools to help grieving people feel supported, and let friends & family know how to give their support.
•

To help make all that happen, we’ve launched a Grief Revolution Patreon page. My patrons get to see everything we create before anyone else, suggest topics to cover in future projects, participate in live Q&A sessions, and more! •

Here's your Saturday reminder that healing is a process. Healing can bring up a lot of emotions, that aren't always positive, so give yourself the space and permission to fee them @spoonie_village  #SocialTwerkers #SelfCareSaturday #SaturdaySelfCare #TrustTheProcess #HealingIsAProcess •

🤦🏾‍♀️🙄 everyday.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Luckily I’ve learned to not only interrupt negative thoughts when they come but to replace them with more positive thoughts, affirmations or scripture while also considering more likely scenarios.
