Fr. Sakowski’s second blog, Brave Shepherds, written primarily for priests “offers a combination of teaching and personal story. The teaching seeks to integrate Scripture, Catholic Tradition, and all the latest insights from research on neurobiology and trauma.


The personal story is offered to put flesh onto the teaching, and to invite the readers to be curious about their own story.” *

What is PTSD? Should I seek help?

It's normal to have upsetting memories, feel on edge, or have trouble sleeping after a traumatic event. At first, it may be hard to do normal daily activities, like go to work, go to school, or spend time with people you care about. But most people start to feel better after a few weeks or months. If it's been longer than a few months and you're still having symptoms, you may have PTSD. For some people, PTSD symptoms may start later on or symptoms may come and go over time.
