Restorative Remarks: Mary Miller on Overcoming Childhood Trauma

Sunset over Nome beach

FINDING THE PATH TO HEALING: OVERCOMING CHILDHOOD TRAUMA, by Mary Miller, was originally presented as a keynote address for the 1995 Alaska Native Children of Alcoholics Conference in Nome.

This address has been adapted for radio in collaboration with NSHC’s Behavioral Health Services’ Native Connections Program for Suicide Awareness and Prevention Month (September). Native Connections Project Director Sherri Anderson has lent her voice to bring this speech to KNOM’s airwaves this month.
