Today the Detroit Arsenal hosted an “Anniversary of Your Retirement” ceremony for our previous CYS Coordinator, Nancy Mitchell. Mitchell retired last year during the pandemic and we were unable to celebrate her accomplishments as a team due to the local conditions.


Mitchell served more than 36 years in federal service, cumulating in her position as the Child and Youth Services Coordinator. Garrison Manger Carrie Mead presented her with a retirement certificate and a garrison manager’s note commemorating her outstanding public service. Mead said that Mitchell’s legacy will live on in all those that she coached and mentored.

“Nancy, you’re a peacock. Peacocks are symbolic for integrity, truth, honor and strength – those are all virtues I see in you,” said Mead. “Peacocks are known for the beauty they bring to the world and you have made us all feel that beauty in your words and actions.”

Denise Ellis, director of Family and Morale, Welfare, and Recreation for Detroit Arsenal reminisced about their time together and said she was blessed to have Nancy as a leader. Ellis also presented Mitchell with a bouquet of sticks from Mitchell’s friends at the golf course.

What’s Happening?
Trauma is an emotional response to an intense event that threatens or causes harm, either physical or emotional. Trauma can occur as a result of a natural disaster (such as an earthquake or flood), violence, or abuse. Seeing violence happen, even if you are not the victim, also may cause trauma. Trauma can have a lasting effect on brain development in children. If not addressed, it can lead to trouble with school, relationships, or drugs and alcohol.

What You Might Be Seeing
Children’s reactions to traumatic events vary with age, culture, and personality. Some children show the following signs of trauma:
• Startling easily and having difficulty calming down
• Behaviors common to younger children (e.g., thumb sucking, bed wetting, fear of the dark, clinging to caregivers)
• Tantrums, aggression, or fighting
• Becoming quiet and withdrawn, wanting to be left alone
• Wanting to talk about the traumatic event all the time, or denying that it happened
• Changes in eating or sleeping (sleeping all the time, not sleeping, nightmares)
• Frequent headaches or stomachaches
What You Can Do
Try the following to help your child heal from trauma:
• Help your child feel safe. Stay calm and keep a regular routine for meals, play time, and bedtime. Prepare children in advance for any changes or new experiences
Encourage (don’t force) children to talk about their feelings. Tell children it is normal to have many feelings after a trauma. Listen to their stories, take their reactions seriously, correct any misinformation about the traumatic event, and reassure them that what happened was not their fault.
• Provide extra attention, comfort, and encouragement. Spending time together as a family may help children feel safe. Younger children may want extra hugs or cuddling. Follow their lead and be patient if they seem needy.
• Teach children to relax. Encourage them to practice slow breathing, listen to calming music, or say positive things (“That was scary, but I’m safe now”).
• Be aware of your own response to trauma. Parents’ history of trauma and feelings about their child’s experience can influence how they cope. Seek support if you need it.
• Remember that everyone heals differently from trauma. Respecting each child’s own course of recovery is important.
• Find help when needed. If your child’s problems last more than a few weeks, or if they get worse rather than better, ask for help. Find a mental health professional who knows proven strategies to help children cope with trauma.

Why Denim? — Denim Day

According to a study released in 2018- more than 1-3 men (34%) have experienced verbal sexual harassment. The most common form of verbal sexual harassment for all men was being purposely misgendered or called homophobic or transphobic slur. About 1-in-4 men (22%) have experienced cyber sexual assault. (The facts behind the #metoo movement: A national study on sexual harassment and assault- Stop Street Harassment, Kearl, H 2018 www.nsvrc.org/statistics) 1 in 14 men indicate they have been made to penetrate another. Almost 80% reported the perpetrator as being female (The National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey: 2015 data brief-updated release, CDC {Smith, et al. 2018} www.nsvrc.org/statistics).

Statistics

Based on the Criminal Victimization 2018 report released in 2019 from US Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Statistics the self-reported incidents of rape or sexual assault more than doubled from 1.4 victimizations per 1,000 person age 12 or older in 2017 to 2.7 in 2018. Despite the increase of self-reports- there was a decrease in reporting to the police during this same timeframe. 40% of rapes and sexual assaults were reported to the police in 2017 but only 25% were reported to police in 2018 (www.nsvrc.org/statistics).
