Tools for today, hope for tomorrow

Christian Children’s Home of Ohio (CCHO), the parent organization of Encompass is celebrating 50 years of ministry this year! Throughout 2019, we will be sharing 50 Stories for 50 Years of Ministry to demonstrate the transformational work God has done through our family of ministries (CCHO, Encourage Foster Care and Encompass Christian Counseling).

Today, we are excited to share another success story from our intensive trauma treatment, Thrive Trauma Recovery, part of Encompass Counseling. In story #42, Kristina Fryson (MSW, LSW, CTT) shows the powerful difference that effective trauma treatment can make in someone’s life.

I realized this 14-year-old girl was much wiser than she presented earlier in the week. She began to express her pain and talk about how she knew she was different from her family, more insightful. She no longer wanted her pain to lead her life and realized, even though she was young, that she had to take charge of her life because her family was too covered in their own trauma to know how to get her out from hers. She made a promise to herself to get out from under her trauma.

Read this 14-year-old’s story and how she not only learned to manage who she was how she was teaching someone else what she had learned. Thrive trauma therapy gave her tools to get through the present and a hope for her future.
