Now we’re on reconciliation trauma therapy reconciliation trauma therapy.
That the individual will reach out for help.
And It becomes important for that individual to connect. With the person they’re asking for help.
Veterans who reach out to the VA or there Health care provider
And it’s important that the response that they get is met with a connection. Yes, we can help you. It’s what I call the reach of Hope. That’s the pain that’s being carried can be lessened or even removed.
And they say honey. Why don’t you get help?
A variety of Homeless veterans
You offer hope and help?
You can provide housing and medical care and food and yet. They refuse to accept the offer.
And choose to remain homeless.
The wonderful stories of those who have been homeless and and accepted the help reached out for help.
And had the help offered.
Are touching testimonies of recovery? And overcoming
I remember on one Veteran’s Day stand up.
There was a woman who was about 60.
And I was representing integrated recovery as an agency and focusing on military sexual trauma.
And she was a homeless woman.
And she started to share her story. When she was serving how she had been sexually assaulted repeatedly.
She would be granted favors.
Even when she resisted He continued. To rape her
Feeling trapped And Loan
Suicide and substance abuse became
Her journey for many years and decades following the Vietnam War.
And so when she spoke to me.
And I asked her.
What help have you gotten?
She said she never sought help.
Just carried the pain. Throughout Decades of her life.
So it’s important that when we start to understand The timeliness Of a reach of Hope and an offer of Hope
And that connection Is not always available. Sometimes people are just not ready to receive the help and when they’re ready. Sometimes it’s not readily available. They don’t know where to get it or how to get it.
So as an exercise, who have you requested? Help from
What happened who offered?
And are you ready now to receive? The help that is being offered.
What was that 6?
