What does a person do when they have seemingly exhausted all of their options to be heard?

We live in a world that cares more about statistical outcomes they have forgotten about the individuals included within that number.

I feel drawn to this place. Feel encouraged to share, talk, explore and safely tell the world what is on my mind.

My name is Amber and I am a survivor!

Chapter One

A fundamental idea in Psychology is that all of the experiences that you have as a child plays a pivotal role in your overall growth and development as an adult. All of the events, feelings, actions an outcomes we observe is internalised and affects the way we choose to respond to certain events and interactions in later life.

As children we lack the ability to make our own choices, so our parents do this for us. Therefore the outcomes cannot be avoided. This has an impact on our psychological development.

Next, we will unpack Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) and trauma.

Adverse Childhood Experiences & Its Connection To Trauma

Adverse Childhood Experiences, or ACEs, are traumatic events that happen in childhood, ages 0-18 years old.

ACEs include; experiencing violence, abuse, neglect and witnessing violence in the home or community. These experiences also include; a family member attempt or die by suicide or witnessing someone being locked up.

By these events occurring while the individual is still within their development years, the experiences and understanding of these events has an affect on them now and later.

ACEs And Their Link To Trauma

ACEs And Their Link To Trauma

Research found that ACEs had a vast impact on health outcomes later in life. The ACEs study noted that stress is a biological mechanism that all humans can experience. Traumatic events do not only happen to children, they occur inside their brains and bodies too.

Stress causes the body to release cortisol. Prolonged exposure to high levels of cortisol, known as toxic stress, impacts the brain’s capacity & ability to learn. The definition of ACEs now includes the impact of racism, oppression, & community violence.

The more ACEs experienced as children increases the likelihood of faulty choices.
