Oprah Winfrey FINALLY Addresses America’s PUBLIC HEALTH CRISIS
May I share medical knowledge about America’s expanding “Public Health Crisis” Oprah Winfrey states she recently became aware of?
On Sunday, March 11, 2018, during a 60 Minutes segment titled “Treating Trauma”, Belinda Pittman-McGee, a Domestic Abuse victim-survivor, EDUCATES Oprah Winfrey, a ‘Childhood Trauma’ aka ‘Adverse Childhood Experiences’ (#ACEs) victim-survivor, about our Nation’s PUBLIC HEALTH CRISIS, a potentially life scarring medical disease and condition known as, ‘Childhood Trauma’ aka ‘Adverse Childhood Experiences’ (#ACEs).
In my opinion, this brief exchange with world renown Childhood Development researcher Dr. Bruce Perry, M.D., Ph.D, is the most ‘important highlight’ of the full 14 minute segment.
The second mind blowing highlight is when Oprah asks Mrs. Pittman-McGee if she believes the cycle of poverty, joblessness, homelessness and incarceration can be solved without first addressing the issue of Childhood Trauma…and Mrs. Pittman-McGee immediately replies, “No.”
Perhaps training, conditioning, educating our Nation’s most precious assets to believe it is okay to ‘snitch’ by reporting to their school officials “Suspected Cases of Child Abuse, Emotional Neglect and Maltreatment”, will help reduce the number of abused, emotionally neglected and maltreated children maturing into depressed, angry, frustrated, sometimes suic!dal, homic!dal thinking teens and adults (May 18, 2015 – Rise in Suic!de by Black Children Surprises Researchers – The New York Times) largely lacking compassion, empathy and respect for their peaceful as well as less fortunate neighbors?
In her own way, Dr. Nadine Burke Harris, M.D., pediatrician and CEO of ‘The Center for Youth Wellness’ joins the late American urban story-TRUTH-teller Tupac Shakur in PASSIONATELY speaking about the relationship between Adverse Childhood Experiences (#ACEs), aka Childhood Trauma, and later-life health and well being.
Sadly, Tupac LOUDLY and consistently revealed to his fans and admirers, THROUGH NO FAULT OF HIS OWN, he was a ‘Childhood Trauma’ (#ACEs) victim who matured into an admitted depressed, suic!dal thinking teen and adult speaking about harming his peaceful neighbors to acquire cash needed to feed his neglected, hungry, “hurting” belly…yet NO ONE listened!
