Together we can celebrate how far we have come, educate ourselves and community on the issues that accompany abuse, find resources, gather support and build our survivor family that believes no child should be abused, molested and/or raped.
Together we can make change, grow, feel supported, be empowered and give voice to this silent epidemic.[/ezcol_2third_end]
“When children report sexual abuse, they are often victimized again by supporters of the child molester. Wearing their blindfolds to avoid seeing the truth and wielding their pitchforks, they swoop in like flying monkeys, and defend the indefensible, treating the offender like a victim. They cling to denial, refusing to see the truth. It happened when my child and I reported her abuser and it happens to other victims every day around the world. Blindfolds and Pitchforks details the story of my emotionally abusive partner who molested my daughter over a period of years and the subsequent re-victimization that we experienced as a result of turning him in. Our story is not rare; it is the norm.” – Stacy Coulter
Jody will take us through an overview of how early trauma effects our basic neurology, attachment, and physiology and what we have learned about these areas has helped us to know how to move towards healing. Jody will incorporate different modes of therapies that address different parts of healing.
