Breaking the Silence and Making a Difference

Healing a Broken Man Along a Broken Road

Healing a Broken Man Along a Broken Road

The book is finally published and available for people to read. It is the third and final book in the Healing the Soul, Skyclad series. And as with all the other books in the series, the profits from the book will be given to the Sheldon Kennedy Child Advocacy Centre in Calgary which works to assist youth who have been sexually abused, as well as to work to make our adult world more vigilant in protection of our youth.

Human nature being what it is, sexual abuse will not disappear. Yet, by breaking the silence, we can allow those who are abused to find a way to receive healing in various ways. Those who are abused as youth, regardless of whether that abuse was sexual, physical, or emotional [think of abandonment as an example], the child is traumatized.

Somehow, our society only recognizes the soldiers who suffer trauma. PTSD has become recognized as being a condition that cripples the psyche. Yet intense trauma is also experienced by Emergency Response teams, nurses, policemen, and firemen. But what about the women who are raped and battered? What about the children who miraculously survive abuse without committing suicide? Too often we respond with “forget about the past and get on with life” for these children who have become broken adults. We need resources to help children, and the children who have survived into adulthood if we are to ever reduce the incidences of abuse in the future.

One thought on “Breaking the Silence and Making a Difference

  1. Hello,

    I will definitely look to getting this book. As a victim of abuse when I was six by an older family member I can understand the trauma that goes with such an act. Too scared to talk about it, hiding and repressing feelings and thinking you did something wrong. For a young mind to comprehend it is locked away until such time it all comes back with a trigger through another situation.

    Thankfully I was able to get help later on, sadly, not everyone is so lucky. Support groups like Child Advocacy now in many areas were not so accessible in my day.

    Thank you for bringing this to light. I hope your book can help those crying out for help but don’t know where to turn.

    Fabien
