My system has been firing for hours since I first saw this thread show up in my feed. I feel absolutely furious that people are misrepresenting #ACEsScience as determinant & dismissing it as unethical & faulty. No one with any reputability is saying "I am my ACEs." #WhyITalkACEs
Maybe you haven't been affected by your experience of #ACEs Maybe you had enough mitigating experiences of #BCEs or #PCEs Maybe you pulled yourself up by your bootstraps. Maybe you were able to access resources in early adulthood to prevent or redirect long term effects.
Maybe the effects of your #ACEs and #ChildhoodToxicStress just haven't shown up in your physiology yet. #Cancer #HeartDisease #Diabetes #COPD #Obesity #AutoimmuneDisease #Suicide #Depression have all been shown to also occur in people with histories of #ChildAbuse #ChildNeglect

A thread on #MentalHealth, #ToxicStress, and #TraumaAwareness in #HigherEd...

With recognition that our leaders are also experiencing all of these challenges, are they acknowledging these realities?
What I'm hearing from faculty is no. People are drowning. Faculty, staff, and students are numb, traumatized, scared, and barely holding on by a thread. And they do not feel seen and supported by #highered leaders. There are, of course, exceptions. Those don't make rules.
I think sometimes our leaders feel like talking about these issues is not their job. It's the counseling office's job, right? No. Not right. Conversations about scope of practice can help move this conversation forward, perhaps. Image

@NoomCoach I am on day 2 of my 14-day trial, and I am almost ready to cancel right now. 1/ I generally advocate for #bodyacceptance and #healthateverysize #HAES, so I am skeptical of all "diets" particularly the rhetoric around restriction and bad calorie science
@NoomCoach 2/ Your app/program claims to have a different relationship to food and value than other diet programs. And while I appreciate the gesture at not labeling foods "good" and "bad" your color-coding system is basically the equivalent
@NoomCoach 3/ Your calorie logic is *EXACTLY THE SAME* as every other diet program out there--weight loss is a simple equation between calories in/calories out. Which btw is overly simplistic. You basically have a teched-up revamp of @WeightWatchers_

1/ Have taken a pause to think carefully about what to say – what can be said – about the framing that can best help #KeepFamiliesTogether. Ready to share now.
2/ There remains much work to be done; the meaning-making work is part of it. Our framing in this moment will determine whether bystander publics – people who don’t yet have a firm stance - get engaged. Today's frames can clear, (or clutter) the path toward meaningful change.
3/ From a social movements perspective, it’s to our advantage to find a frame that builds understanding of #FamilySeparation writ large: at the border, in communities affected by parental incarceration, in conflict zones. More here: - thanks to @AECFNews
