social worker, therapist working with trauma and substance use. Working for the last five years with Alaska Native clients has been life changing for many reasons. Learning about the ACE study, epigenetic research and Historical Trauma in the Native communities here, has opened the door for me to my own re-examination of intergenerational trauma in Western Civilization.

This realm of understanding offers hope for a re-evaluation of what we in the West think of as "human nature," and suggests that we have shaped our very notions of what it is to be human, through our own intergenerational trauma history.

If you want to replace that ubiquitous blue head with your photo, just go to the top right of the page where you'll see a white box with your name at the top. Click on "Settings", a line at the bottom of a white box. And at the top of the page that opens, you'll see a place to upload a photo.
If you want to start adding information to the network, just go to "My Page" (in the top navigation bar). Be sure to click on "blog post" at the top of the open box, put in a title, and then start typing in the box below.
Also, you'll see that some people have also posted their photo on the photo page, which is a great idea. (You can also do that from "My Page".) You can even add a text block with more information about your work or avocation.
Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about how to use this network. I'm always happy to help.
