BLue collar mental health... from people who have lived it
We’re not afraid of trauma
Mac learned to deal with trauma in the culture of the Marine Corps. What you’ll hear is quintessentially “Marine-like” — direct, plain spoken and lands with a thud. Most find comfort in someone finally “calling a spade a spade.” Our approach remains direct because the vast majority of people who Mac has encountered through trauma mentoring are unafraid to face it, talk about it and take action relative to it.
We’re not afraid of trauma
- You’ll never get over this… but you will learn to coexist with it
- God hasn’t invented enough time to heal your wound…
- It’s okay to be damaged…
For those who live with trauma there is often confusion and frustration because of the things they get told about trauma by very well intentioned people — most of which isn’t true.
We know the truth because many of us have lived with trauma for decades.
post traumatic winning:
Our program is designed to come to you, to share what we’ve learned, to change the way your organization or group views trauma and those who live with it. The POST TRAUMATIC WINNING PROGRAM is just the beginning, we don’t stop there, we provide all the materials you’ll need to continue this discussion for years after the on-site program concludes.
The Gospel of coexisting with trauma
the mental health path of a human being
I never intended to be someone who helped others deal with trauma… it just kinda happened to me as I’ve dealt with the traumatic events of my own life.
I learned about trauma by paying attention to others who told me smart things and tried to engage them in conversations as often as they were willing to talk about the subject. Their frankness always helped me.
I had never heard of PTSD and don’t think the term was widely used until the early 2000’s. In Iraq, in 2004, I began to offer the things I had learned to others dealing with the things they saw and did during the war there. I have continued to be a “trauma mentor” to others since then.
Trauma isn’t a disability for most people but I find that there is not enough plain spoken truth about living with trauma and this effort is my attempt at helping to fix that problem.
My hope is that you will listen, read and then bring the POST TRAUMATIC WINNING program to your organization, school, unit or group… I promise you it will change lives.
