CSA survivors experience a range of mental, physical and emotional wellness issues throughout their lives due to the traumas in their history.
Parenting becomes a layer of extraordinary relief as well as pain. It can be a wonderful experience as well as a triggering, anxiety-producing experience.
In this episode I talk about the experience of parenting through the PTSD lens; specifically when dealing with the issue of abuse prevention.
In this episode, I’m talking about how PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) and CPTSD (complex post-traumatic stress disorder) affect our parenting and the difficulties that survivors find themselves in.
I also discuss how it is compounded when it stems from or becomes an intergenerational issue.
I shared some of my own stories and struggle with anxiety and fear with my oldest child about the possibility of him being abused. And I talked about a specific experience, how I dealt with it, and what the resolution was at the end.
In this episode, I share the things and ways that I was able to navigate that specific issue and what I recommend for you, my listeners, who have battled with a similar experience.
This episode is not a prescription for what to do, but instead a motivation and inspiration for what is possible when you begin to realize that you are worthy of support.
