THE SECRET STRUGGLE
EMOTIONAL AND MENTAL HEALTH POST COVID
Post COVID, people are waking up to the fact that our mental wellbeing directly impacts our physical, emotional and mental health and our productivity at work. Your staff members may be struggling; in secret.
The anxiety and trauma are overwhelming at times even for those of us who don’t face ongoing mental health concerns; for those of us who do, it can be completely debilitating. Isolation has wreaked havoc on even the most stable of individuals. Your staff members may be struggling.
We’re all trying to figure out what to do with the fear, uncertainty, and ambiguity of life as we know it right now. For some, it’s a matter of trying to stay safe and navigate threatening people or emotions. This has a direct impact on your company, ministry or association.
Craig has served hundreds who have been directly impacted by isolation, change in work habits, strained relationships and dealing with illness. He shares from personal experience the impact addiction had on his life mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually and post COVID, how he has helped hundreds navigate the life struggles and challenges.
He shares many helpful principles in helping attendees deal with THE SECRET STRUGGLE from his book STOP HIDING START HEALING.
WHEN THE PAIN IS GREATER THEN YOUR FEAR
PAIN IS AMAZING. We are conditioned to hide it. When processed in a healthy way, it can be a catalyst for healthy choices and change
or prolonged suffering. It’s our choice. When we experienced pain at a very young age, we developed coping skills in order to deal with the
pain and various other emotions such as shame, guilt, hurt, disappointment, embarrassment, abandonment and abuse.
These coping skills worked at helping us escape, hide, and not have to deal
with these horrible feelings and emotions. If not acknowledged and dealt with we carried them over into our adult life. Our first
inclination was to stuff the pain and not deal with it.
Your staff deals with pain everyday. If not handled in a healthy way, they will do whatever necessary to hide it. Hidden pain has a direct impact on productivity.
Only when the pain is greater than our fear of changing are we ready to do whatever
it takes to begin the healing process. I’m convinced from personal
experience that pain and desperation are a catalyst for success.
Craig experienced pain, depression, hurt and shame at a very deep level. Only when his pain was greater than his fear of changing was he able to harness the strength and energy necessary to be set free.
Your staff, ministry team or organization will discover how to identify their pain and overcome their fear of changing.
STOP HIDING START HEALING
We learned at a very young age how to hide from pain, shame, guilt, abuse, hurt, betrayal and abandonment. Most of us learned to
protect ourselves with defense mechanisms and personality traits that ensure our safety. Hiding became a learned practice and it worked. It helped us cope with our emotions and feelings. It helped keep us
The only way we were going to survive our youth, teenage years, young adult and adult life was to hide from our pain, shame, guilt
and life struggles; and people.
There are many reasons why we hide. Hiding out of fear and our own insecurities are at the top of the list. We fear revealing our true
self to others.
Your attendees will discover how to come out of hiding and embrace their pain, shame, guilt or past failures. They will discover how to accept who they are and put away the mask.
