When #MeToo Triggers Painful Memories

While the #MeToo movement is awesome and bringing much-needed attention to the ubiquitous problem of sexual abuse in our culture, it is also triggering some painful memories for many survivors. If that is the case for you or someone you know Wendy Maltz, author of The Sexual Healing Journey has helped write an informative article for Bottomline Health that gives lots of suggestions for ways to deal with upsetting feelings and and heal from what happened in the past. The article, “When #MeToo Brings Up Painful Memories of Sexual Abuse, Here’s Help” covers questions survivors have such as: whether and how much to disclose about past sex abuse, who to share with, what to do if the past offender is still in your life, when to seek therapy, and more.

Wendy is also featured in a program discussing #MeToo and Sexual Abuse Healing on the “About Health” KPFA Radio show with Dr. Will Courtenay, November 6, 2017. To listen, CLICK HERE FOR KPFA RADIO SHOW LINK
