Well, it’s what we suspected all along…
A new study from the University of Wisconsin-Madison shows that stress from childhood is linked with a diminished awareness of looming risk or punishment, and higher than normal emotional reactions to the consequences. This confirms a lot of stuff we’ve been saying here at Crappy Childhood Fairy. And it points to solutions.
You can see an article about the study (that links to the study) here.
If you want to see the video where I teach the technique referenced for calming an emotional overreaction, you can see it here.
Later this week I’ll be talking about “The Underdog Effect” — the repeating cycle of habits, poor judgment and distorted thinking that can trap us in the effects of childhood PTSD. If you want to be sure to see that video when it’s released, be sure to follow this blog! You’ll get an e-mail whenever a new post is published.
Thanks for reading (and watching)!
