A Pathway to Healing, with Patrick Anderson
Show Notes Chapter Markers

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)
