Season 3: Trauma Healing Learning 12: How Dads Can Support Trauma Healing by Forming a Yard Brigade with Jim Hebert

BOE_Google_Slides-49jyqi.jpg

 

Most of us have known a family in medical crisis. However, what we don’t always know is how we could possibly help a family experiencing major grief and loss. This Trauma Healing Learning details how to create a network of support for families in need. Learn how to appoint “Quarterbacks” to specific tasks, as well as the value of a central communication system, “Point Persons” and how to avoid overwhelming those volunteering. If you’re a hard-working and yard-working Dad, consider pitching in by making the outside of someone’s home look like a beautiful trauma healing sanctuary. No act of kindness is insignificant, and yard work is sometimes overlooked. Your home is a sanctuary, and it can look like one too. Love and beauty can help heal heartbreaking trauma. Join Louise in her emotional recollection of the time a dear friend, Jim Hebert, performed this gardening kindness, along with a brigade of Archer’s Army.

Season 3: Episode 12: Going Home Part 1

BOE_Google_Slides-28xaax.jpg

 

Welcome to Episode 12… and welcome home. This two-part segment of the Blink of an Eye story details the behind-the-scenes fear and insecurity Archer and Louise were facing at the Shepherd Center in more detail than ever before. The foreboding of an overstayed welcome begins to set in, and you’ll experience heartbreaking as well as uplifting wonderings. Most importantly, hear what Louise was unable to share at the time, including texts, work and family stress, anxieties about going home and more. In this episode, Blink of an Eye reaches new heights of truth and authenticity with Louise’s “Personal Journal Notes.” These are entries written in real time by Archer’s beside, usually in the soft, nighttime glow of hospital monitors, which Louise never included in the Archer Blogs for reasons you will hear about. You’ll hear some surprises as well as ways that you might create a homecoming for your friends in crisis.  

 

In this episode, you’ll hear interview excerpts from:

 

Ellen Webb, a long-time neighbor, friend and “sister,” as Louise describes in this first part of Episode 12. Ellen was on a walk at the time of Louise’s arrival to Baltimore, and she offered heartwarming support during what was an emotional return to the Senft family home.

 

Jim Hebert, a great neighbor, a father of three and a dear friend. Jim was a part of the yard brigade that kept the Senft house a beautiful home during Archer’s time in hospital care.
