Warrior Connection – 08.23.15

Warrior Connection was a continuing discussion on PTSD and avoiding the hooks.

HOOKS

Substance abuse is a constant danger to those who are living with PTSD.
Because we are always looking for something to help us forget or make us feel better, we become prone to addiction. We can avoid substance abuse if we will make a conscience decision to begin making better choices.
This program will help you to better understand addiction.

“Watch out for the Hooks” is an object lesson designed for youth (6 and older) to help them identify and avoid destructive addictions in America today. I have been demonstrating this unique object lesson (based on fishing) to young people and adults alike for the past twelve years. It has proven to be a great source of information on how to avoid being ensnared by attractive “lures” that will rob them of having a happy and fulfilled life.

This is a “must see” demonstration that will empower young people to detect and avoid the many “lures” that the commercial world will inevitably put in front of them. They will learn through a simple fishing lesson the snares and dangers of playing with “HOOKS.”
This object lesson has been presented to many Church groups, Private and Public school classes, Martial Arts Training Halls and Tournament events, Craven County Detention Center, Pitt County Adult & Juvenile Detention Centers along with Prime For Life substance abuse and prevention classes at MCAS Cherry Point, N.C.

This program of Help and Hope was created to keep our children and young adults clean and free from destructive addictions. Please call for more information or a demonstration.

Thomas Riggins – Over Forty Percent of U.S. Children Are Living in Poverty

A January 2015 report from Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health reveals that forty four percent of children (those under 18) are living in de facto poverty. The Federal Government issues an artificially low annual official poverty level that radically understates the real level of U.S. poverty. For 2015 the official level of poverty for a family of four, …

China’s Unaddressed Mental Health Problems – CESAR CHELALA

China has a complex history in the treatment of the mentally ill. In 1849, the first mental institutions in the country were founded by Western missionaries. One of them, Dr. John G. Kerr, instituted some principles which are even valid today. Among those principles were the following: mentally ill patients shouldn’t be blamed for their actions; those that were hospitalized …

Ourhealth is far better, our life expectancy much longer, our standard of living visibly higher. Our jobs are less taxing physically. We have a safety net, which, whatever its inadequacies, is more extensive than anything that previously existed. Yet, by most measures, adults feel morestress than …

Procrastination Part I: Why You Do It

This is the first of a two-part post on procrastination: Part I addresses why we procrastinate; Part II will focus on strategies to decrease procrastination. Many people misunderstand procrastination as a problem of laziness or poor time management. But procrastination—especially problem procrastination—is often a strategy used to manage struggles with self-esteem. Everybody puts off some things some of the time. But some folks …

Has America Become a PTSD Nation?

It has been more than 13 years since 9/11, and some things that have become routine weren’t so in those blissfully ignorant days before that trauma, when the biggest news stories focused more on cheating politicians and shark attacks. With yet another fear-mongering alert that Al-Shabaab (the latest variation on a theme) is somehow targeting every mall in the entire …
