I had the priviledge of being asked to do various documentaries on the issues of abuse and healing. As a survivor and counselor, I know the deep pain and after affect of abuse, especially sexual abuse, does not just go away because we grow older. Unless we deal with the trauma when it happens, it remains and even holds us back emotionally at the point where the abuse happened until we get help. We grow older physically and intellectually but our emotions remain at the point of the trauma. As adults, we wonder why we are having so many health and emotional issues yet don’t realize the connection to our past.
In a hope to bring healing and understanding to those who have suffered from abuse as well as those who love and live with survivors, I have two of my most powerful documentaries below to provide some healing and answers. They are “View from the Shadows, part one” and “Out of the Shadows” both were aired on PBS.
