Can People - and Even Communities - Heal from Trauma?

EPISODE #27 | Kerri Gallen, MSW, LCSW - Coordinator of Trauma-informed & Racial Equity Programs, Saint Louis Counseling

If "Mad Men's" Don Draper had grasped how trauma impacted his life, chances are pretty good that the AMC series would have portrayed a very different story. Why? Because trauma influences how our brains work. And as upsetting, devastating or debilitating a deeply disturbing event or perceived threat can be, people who experience trauma can and do find healing.

Studies show that one out of 22 adults has been impacted by trauma, and new research indicates that nearly two-thirds of the adult population have had at least one traumatic episode in their lives. But what does trauma look like? Is it always as escalating as the events that took place in #Ferguson? Or can it also include day-to-day situations, like not being able to make ends meet? Find out in this week's Mental Health Matters podcast, when Executive Director Tom Duff, MSW, LCSW discusses with Saint Louis Counseling's Coordinator of Trauma-Informed & Racial-Equity Programs Kerri Gallen, MSW, LCSW, how being trauma-informed, along with building relationships and showing awareness and empathy, will help individuals and communities heal.

How do you deal with workplace stress? One way to start is to figure out if the stress is about our job, the people we work with or ourselves, or a combination. This week’s Tom’s Tips offers insights into why we carry stress and what we can do to manage it in healthy ways. ...

It’s Time for Men to “Man Up” to Their Mental Health
Stigma Is Hazardous to Men’s Overall Health

EPISODE #26 | Tom Duff, MSW, LCSW – Executive Director
June 28, 2019

WARNING: Stigma increases the risk of untreated mental- or emotional-health conditions or mental illness. And buying into the presumption that a person is weak for getting help can be hazardous, even deadly. One of the highest groups at risk? Males.

Six million men in America deal with depression, but only 49 percent seek treatment. Men account for 75 percent of suicides in the country. Six out of 10 men experience trauma. And the highest mental illness diagnoses for men include: depression, anxiety, psychosis, schizophrenia and eating disorders. What factors contribute to such grim statistics? Oftentimes, it’s the mental health stigma and men’s perception that asking for help makes them look weak. A male himself, Executive Director Tom Duff, MSW, LCSW challenges all men to “man up” by opening up and seeking help when they need it – before they become another statistic.

For Kids’ Sake, Be a Good Sport!

On the heels of Pujols’ jubilant return to St.louiscardinals Nation this past weekend, the timing for this week’s Tom’s Tips episode couldn’t be any more on base. Especially when it comes to kids. As #youthsports games continue throughout the summer months, it’s important to keep a game plan in mind as the players take the field: Remember that they are kids!

If there’s one highlight to remember from #STL fans’ contagious ovations for the future Hall-of-Famer playing on the opposing team, it’s that sometimes plain ole good sportsmanship reverberates louder than the crushing collision of @Albert Pujols bat striking a sinker. And when that homer sailed just six feet from where Executive Director Tom Duff, MSW, LCSW and his son sat on Saturday afternoon, you can bet the two Cubs fans stretched as far as their baseball gloves would take them to try and clinch the second-best moment of the game, followed only by the demanded curtain call by Cards fans for the man who now wears Los Angeles Angels red. If there were ever a lesson in what it means to be a good sport, St. Louis had it all within arms’ reach!

Getting in Step with Body, Mind and Spirit
Healing the body “sole to soul”

EPISODE #25 | Sara Newberry, LMT, NCTMB – Owner, Sole Shine Barefoot Massage

Sometimes, getting stepped on can be a good thing. And for Sara Newberry, it even gives her purpose. Having danced ballet for as long as she can remember, deft footwork has played a key role in defining her career path. So has massage therapy – a remedy that provided lasting relief from migraine and TMJ pain when Sara was younger. Partner those touchpoints with other life experiences, and Sara has paved a career journey that leads directly to a destination of healing.

Seven years ago, Sara launched a career that balanced her past experiences and skills with a strong desire to “heal the body, sole to soul” by opening Sole Shine Barefoot Massage in Maplewood, MO. In our 25th episode of the Mental Health Matters podcast with Executive Director Tom Duff, MSW, LCSW, hear how Sara uses the soles of her feet in ways that empower her clients to pivot out of physical and emotional pain into a newfound sense of freedom. All by being stepped on.
