The Voices Of & For Parenting Surivors

Trigger Points: Childhood Abuse Survivors Experiences of Parenting. **Available Now**


We are so proud to have the official release of the Trigger Points Anthology finally upon us!

Now, when parents go looking, as Joyelle, I and so many others have done, for information on raising children as an abuse survivor, they will find a resource to connect with, discuss and share.

Investigating the triggers we experience as we parent is vital to raising healthy children. This anthology is a resource for parents, but also for those in the social work, mental health and medical fields that work with parents. This is also an invaluable resource for partners of parent survivors as well.

The Trigger Points Anthology is a tool to help survivors heal, and end the cycles of abuse.

Here’s a look at what those who received advanced copies are saying…

This is a necessary book. A wonderful and helpful resource. The book so many of us looked for and craved and ached for. And couldn’t find.


If you are a survivor who is now a parent, this book is proof that you are not alone. I was amazed at how much I learned from reading the other essays. I feel validated. I feel heard. I feel stronger.


Parenting as a survivor is not an easy experience. It is unique and often lonely. This book brings a new type of support to the table. It has helpful journal prompts, and thought provoking questions. I highly recommend this to any survivor, supporter of a survivor, or therapist.


I encourage survivors and spouses of survivors to read this book for a better understanding in child rearing. I love this book!

The Trigger Points Anthology is available in paperback and Kindle edition.

  1. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I can’t wait to read this. I’ve been telling people for the last 3 years I’ve been parenting … “WHY is no one talking about what it’s like to parent with a history of abuse.” It’s exhausting. It’s triggering and it requires so much time and effort to work through the many layers of emotional healing to parent consciously (luckily for me emotional freedom work is what I do for a living!) I can’t imagine going through parenting without them.

    Thank you for putting a valuable resource out there.


    1. Crystal, thank you! Am I right in assuming you are a prenatal coach? I ask because I’m curious exactly what that means. I’ve been thinking a lot about how this when we are pregnant, we attend classes to learn how to diaper and feed and other basic needs to provide but actually preparing the parents emotionally never seems to come in to play. I truly believe there is a place for this topic at the prenatal level of preparing for parenthood. Curious to hear your thoughts. ~Dawn
