You’re not going to want to miss what we have in store for the month of February! The Survivors Empowering Survivors series is shaping up to be no less than awe-inspiring.
Here’s a sneak peek at just a few of the survivors you’ll be hearing from:
Amy Oestreicher – A PTSD peer-peer specialist, artist, author, writer for The Huffington Post, award-winning health advocate, actress and playwright. As a survivor and “thriver” of nearly 30 surgeries, a coma, sexual abuse, organ failure and a decade of medical trauma, Amy has been challenged with and continues to overcome extreme circumstances she calls life’s detours.
Byron Hamel – An award-winning Canadian journalist, television producer, author and blogger at Trauma Dad. Despite being raised by a violent man who got the death penalty for torturing and killing a baby, Byron is a loving father dedicated to fighting child abuse and empowering others to heal.
Liz Mullinar – A woman who walked away from being one of Australia’s leading casting consultant for over thirty years, after realizing she gained more satisfaction helping those who, like herself, had been abused. Liz co-founded ASCA (Adults Surviving Child Abuse) and is the founder of Heal For Life Healing Centres, a program for survivors of child abuse and trauma, run almost entirely by volunteers – people who have healed through the program and want to help others to do the same.
If you are looking to connect to and learn from other survivors, or you have the itch to use your experiences and own recovery to engage with and help others, you are sure to find motivation and guidance in the stories we will be sharing.
There is still time to submit but the February 7th deadline is fast approaching. You can read more about the submission process and what we are looking for here.
