How to heal as an adult when you’ve been abused — physically or sexually — as a child
This is an episode probably best listened to without the children around. My good friend, Dr. Mcayla Sarno, and I have a heart to heart about the new HBO documentary series: “Leaving Neverland”. Get ready for a lot of open and honest convo! Also, Dr. Mcayla gives her amazing insights — from child abuse to celebrity — from a therapist’s perspective.
You’ll also find…
- Is it possible to dissociate the artist from the man (and still listen to MJ’s music)?
- What is the true definition of idolize?
- Why the parents of the accusers refused to see reality
- A personal story with my daughter, Cierra, and a near-miss experience with an abusive coach
- How the response to your sexual abuse – by those you love most – is often more traumatic than the abuse itself
- How do you respond as a parent when your child opens up about abuse?
- And, of course, the importance of good therapy!
