This is a must for anyone who has children or would like to know more about how abusers set the scenario for potential abuse. This talk covers how to teach your children about handling this scenario by empowering them about their bodies in an appropriate way.
Author Yvonne Ellis will be helping those who want to write down their experiences and feelings about sexual, physical or emotional abuse in a constructive format. As a group the expressive workshop will look at dealing with painful memories, the importance of having a voice and exploring positive avenues such as poetry, journaling and the process of planning and writing your own book.
