    Survivor Story - Using Poetry to Heal from Family Abuse - Author Carol White

    Survivor Story - Using Poetry to Heal from Family Abuse - Author Carol White

    Carol White, Doctor of Nursing Practice and abuse survivor, shares her mother's legacy of surviving her own abuse through publishing her mother's poetry.'My mother was a survivor of domestic violence who, after 23 years of marriage, was able to escape her husband. She filed charges against him and carried those through to trial. But writing poetry was her lifeline. While she was alive, my mother did not have the confidence or money to bring her work to publication outside of entering poetry contests, where she won nearly 200 awards in 15 states. Though my mother passed away in 2005, three years ago I started the process of bringing her work to publication. There are a total of 10 books set for release over the next couple years, starting with Stoic Resilience: Poems of Suffering and Freeing Oneself from Abuse.'Find more information on Carol's website White Publishing (https://www.white-publishing.com/).———————————If you need resources or help in any way, call our 24 hour hotline at 800-828-2023 or visit www.DASASMI.org.Subscribe for a new episode each week.

    Surviving the Holidays as a Survivor

    Surviving the Holidays as a Survivor

    The holidays can be tough for anyone. They're especially difficult for victims and survivors of abuse. Oftentimes they're immersed in family where their abuser lives. Or perhaps the question of, "Where is that nice person you were dating last year?" brings up all the emotions of surviving abuse. Whatever the case, Elizabeth Alderson, therapist at DASAS, offers insights into surviving the holidays as a survivor.———————————If you need resources or help in any way, call our 24 hour hotline at 800-828-2023 or visit www.DASASMI.org.Subscribe for a new episode each week.

Needed this

Thank you for making a podcast that can help people who don’t even realize how toxic things have become. Helps put a lot into perspective especially what’s been normalized in relationships these days. Thank you so much.

Love what you’re trying to do

Just want to say that although I LOVE the work you’re trying to do, some of the information in episode 54 in particular is not correct. Importantly, traffickers all too often DO have intimate relationships with those they are trafficking. I don’t want to bash the girls you brought on the episode because I understand that they’re well meaning and some of the info they presented is spot on, but as the owner of a business that consults on trafficking issues and trains on anti-human trafficking measures, I also understand that IPV and human trafficking are far more interconnected than than this episode suggests. I would have loved to see you discuss more about how victims are recruited and the signs that someone is being trafficked!

You blessed me

I listened to a few of your episodes but the one that got me together was where you were discussing the factors behind shame and guilt when being molested and raped. I have a sexual abuse platform I’m building called Survivor To Overcomer... S2O so when I hear this particular episode, I shared it to help others! Just because your body reacted in its natural form does NOT mean you endorsed what was being taken! I didn’t personally deal with that! But i wanted to share it because I never even thought about that! Men becoming hard or women becoming wet... And I was molested and raped as a child! I say all of this to say PLEASE continue to educate the culture! My motto is “NO FINE LINES!” Please continue to help make we’re creating healing for the overcomes, understanding to those connected and society, and distinct ways to determine what’s what!
