Amazing new film dealing with trauma and healing in Indonesia

The July 19th segment of Democracy Now (available free on the web) examines an amazing new film titled, "The Act of Killing," and includes a lengthy interview with the director. Having an interest in trauma, not only as a therapist working with individuals, but also regarding how trauma impacts entire groups of people and entire societies, I find the theme of this film very compelling.  It is a look at the men who conducted the genocide of between a half million to 2.5 million people in…See More

Profile Information

What's your profession?
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 has brought a sense of wholeness to my life and work, as my efforts to better understand and support Native Alaskan clients, has led me to a deeper understanding of the deep seated intergenerational trauma history impacting those of us of Euro-american descent. 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.

Hi, Gary. Welcome to the ACEs Too High Network. Thanks for joining ! 

And thanks for adding your info about your interest in ACEs. Do you work for an agency? Or are you an independent consultant? I'll include your information in the ongoing roundup of responses

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.

Cheers, Jane
