Free E-Book!

Have you ever wished you could tell your family and friends what you really need from them, but haven't known what to say? Do you sometimes struggle to find words for what you are looking for from those around you?

Now you don't have to.

Coming this week, you will be able to download this free mini e-book to give to your friends and family as a roadmap for them to use to help you in the way you want and need to be helped.

Simple, straightforward, and easy-to-understand, this short booklet will cover:

What you want people in your life to know.
What you don't want people in your life to say or do. 

And what you do need people in your life to say or do to support you. 

This book is a free gift to you.

I wrote it after hearing the same phrases over and over from the survivors I've counseled. I wish they knew... I hate it when they say...

And they always tell me, "I know they mean well but when this happens it hurts me." 

This book will gives you words to express those needs to those who love you most and want to help. 

All you have to do to get it is click on the picture above or this link here and I'll send to you when it's ready, in the next week. 

Just go here to get the book free!  

Your email address will be kept totally private and only used to send you the book link and occasional blog posts time to time. You can unsubscribe any time. (But I doubt you'll want to.) 

Get the book!

Resources for Therapists, Counselors And Families

As you know, the mission of this blog is to provide hope and healing for survivors of sexual abuse and assault. Part of that mission is to provide helpful and accurate resources for those working to support survivors. To this end, I recently created a video for therapists to help them understand the reality of the struggle clients in crisis go through when processing what has happened to them.

Click the play button to watch the video in the blog or click here to watch at YouTube.

This particular video would also be a good resource for families or friends of survivors with questions like:

"Why didn't you tell someone sooner?"

"Why didn't you go to the police?"

"Why didn't you feel people would believe you?"

You know the answers to those questions, but it's very hard to put the answers into words. This video is here to help you do that! 

Did this video help answer some of your questions as a counselor or therapist? How do you plan on using this information to help survivors?
