The objective of the Broken Water newsletter is threefold: (1) to network with professionals working in the field, sharing the latest research and methodology on child abuse; (2) to champion those who have experienced childhood trauma and (3) to share timely works by my pen.
This objective is close to my heart not only because it is my field of study, but because I have learned how to live a full and meaningful life after my own experience of child maltreatment.
The road to healing is unique for each individual. With that in mind, it is essential that options in the field of therapy are made available and understandable to one traveling the path to recovery.
Education is vital to recovery for the healer and the healed. I invite collaboration by way of attribution in the publishing of this newsletter. Students in the field of human development, counseling and psychology are also encouraged to participate. Likewise, clergy, foster care parents, child advocates, survivors and others who have a deep passion for child and family welfare are encouraged to share their knowledge and expertise.
February's newsletter will open a conversation about the crisis of the foster care system in the US.
