Mary introduces us to Betsy Kanarowski, the Chief Clinical Officer at Saprea, an organization that fights against childhood sexual abuse. Betsy explains her background and the work she does at Saprea. They discuss the impact of childhood sexual abuse on individuals and society, including the physical and emotional effects. Betsy emphasizes the importance of self-care and mindfulness in healing from trauma. They also talk about the retreats offered by Saprea and the power of community in the healing process. As a society, we must believe survivors and create a safe space for them to share their stories. Betsy urges us to educate ourselves, have open and honest dialogues, and support those who are hurting. By breaking the silence and addressing childhood sexual abuse, we can create a world where survivors are heard, believed, and supported. Healing from childhood sexual abuse is a complex and deeply personal journey. It requires a holistic approach that addresses the impact on the brain, body, and spirit. By providing a safe and supportive community, survivors can find the strength to heal and reclaim their lives. Let us stand together, believe survivors, and work towards a world free from the devastating effects of childhood sexual abuse.
