Why am I feeling this way?
When I heard from a former volunteer extraordinaire asking how she could help Control Alt Delete I knew just the thing!
Chrysta helped with classes for kids in foster care at my former job. She helped them understand the effects of trauma. The kids sat in rapt attention finally understanding some of their reactions to certain situations.
Very often I hear from Survivors of domestic abuse that they just can’t understand how come they can’t get past what happened. I knew immediately that I would like Chrysta to put a presentation together to help Survivors understand trauma a little better but most importantly understand their reactions to it.
“Trauma reactions are normal responses to abnormal situations. They are NOT a sign of weakness”
Chrysta put together this presentation to help understand what happens when you are exposed to trauma. Understanding is a great step towards healing, not just for Survivors but for the people surrounding them in their day to day life.
Thank you for sharing your knowledge and helping Survivors understand and heal.
With your help we are creating a Society of Survivors – one escape at a time!
Control Alt Delete removes the barriers that often keep people in unsafe domestic violence environments. We bridge the gap in services and help in that immediate time of need providing one time assistance with services such as gas gift cards, cab rides, bus tickets, hotel rooms and new locks and security measures for homes where Survivors will be staying.
