You, Me, Empathy - Episode 22: The Impact of Sexual Abuse with Tony the Therapist

On Episode 22 of You, Me, Empathy, I sit down with Tony the Therapist to explore the emotional and physiological impact of sexual abuse, including support systems, survival mechanisms, and adapting to trauma.

This is a follow-up episode to Episode 21 with Christina. If you haven't listened to that episode, please do! It's a must listen.

On this episode, we talk about the betrayal of the child-parent bond, the importance of safe people in our lives, ways that victims of sexual abuse present themselves to therapists (hint: it usually doesn't start with the assault), and the things we do to survive, cope, and adapt to trauma.

Thanks for listening, and thanks for empathizing with us!
