    Shola Richards on the Heart of a Healthy Workplace

    Shola Richards on the Heart of a Healthy Workplace

    If you’ve worked any time at all, then you’ve worked in some place that was unhealthy. Maybe it was full of gossip and backstabbing. Or perhaps there was one disgruntled employee who just made the whole place miserable. Or perhaps you or one of your colleagues was bullied. Toxic workplaces take an emotional toll. They’re exhausting. Draining. Demoralizing.
    What can we do as leaders to create a healthy workplace culture right from the very start? How do we turn around one that’s developed some sort of trouble spot? And how do we contribute to a healthier and happier workplace through our own attitude and resiliency? In “The Heart of a Healthy Workplace,” speaker, author, and workplace culture consultant Shola Richards talks to us about creating a healthy workplace environment.

    The ACEs Message and Its Unintended Consequences, with Dr. Jonathan Purtle

    The ACEs Message and Its Unintended Consequences, with Dr. Jonathan Purtle

    When the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Study came out and proved the link between traumas such as child abuse and long-term negative health and mental health impacts, why did the public latch onto some results but not others? Why are people less convinced about the physical health impacts of ACEs than others? What role does political leaning play? And are we messaging some things that are harmful or counter-productive? We talk to Jonathan Purtle from Drexel University about how to make sure the general public understands and wants to make the kinds of system changes necessary to improve kids’ lives.

    ACEs go mainstream (02:14)Studying the right way to message about abuse (06:39)Research results (10:19)People resist ACEs’ brain/body connection (15:38)Unintended consequences (20:01)How to talk about solutions (27:28)More research needed (32:41)What to say and what not to say (35:48)For more information about this topic (42:36)Links:

    The Journey to Jenna's Law, with Jenna Quinn

    The Journey to Jenna's Law, with Jenna Quinn

    Jenna Quinn was one of the first survivors to translate their experience of abuse into child abuse prevention public policy. Jenna was abused by a close friend of the family, someone known through the Christian school she attended. Her mom was a teacher, and her family very supportive, and yet Jenna, like so many others, became vulnerable to ongoing abuse because she didn’t know who, or how, to tell. And her school, like so many other schools, provided no abuse prevention education to kids or to school personnel. The 2009 Jenna’s Law changed that in Texas and became a model for other efforts. Listen in as we explore how centering the experiences of survivors can translate into important policy solutions, and how survivors can not only survive but experience post-traumatic growth that allows them to thrive.
    Topics in this episode:
    Why she spoke up (1:25)Jenna’s Law (8:44)Stigma (12:44)Faith communities and child abuse (15:04)Post-traumatic growth (18:23)What’s next for Jenna (35:44)Advice for CACs (39:45)Next episode (44:53)Links:

    A Pathway to Healing, with Patrick Anderson

    A Pathway to Healing, with Patrick Anderson

    When we think about Alaska, we think of Denali, pictures we’ve seen, movies we’ve watched, the wonderful wildlife, and people still living on the cusp of the frontier. But what films don’t always show, and what books don’t always cover, is the incredible challenges of this environment: the high rates of trauma, the high rates of addiction, the high rates of suicide, and the high rates of child abuse. How do you help families identify the root causes of trauma and truly heal?  We talk to Patrick Anderson, CEO of RurAL CAP, about the nexus of a brutal truth and enduring hope.
    Topics in this episode:
    Working in Alaska (1:26)Toxic stress (7:47)Historical trauma (12:57)The fear response (17:48)Six step healing hypothesis (26:28)Whole community healing (38:28)Two generation response (42:33)The Stockdale paradox: Brutal truth and enduring hope (46:10)Links:

Great podcast for Child Welfare professionals

Great topics and very timely. I love the pace of the host too

JID1946 ,

Outstanding episode on child trafficking

I often hear students speak to “child prostitution” the benefits of legal prostitution and worst of all, prostitution as a “victimless crime.”

I plan to use the episode as a lesson on the problems and issues. My university tends to neglect victimology as a criminal justice perspective.

Well done.

Klrtg ,

Very informative - but where is the 11th episode?

At the end of episode 10 it says there is going to be another episode (with Dr. Amaya Jackson), is there a plan to actually publish that episode or any additional ones?
