Tolson 4 TEARS "Safely Sharing Stories"

Author/Advocate Lynn C. Tolson participated in a panel discussion at the Finding Our Voices: Healing Art Activities for Survivors of Sexual Assault. April 2010 was Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Finding Our Voices held the annual art show and sale, a 3 day event for survivors of sexual abuse and their allies. "Safely Sharing Stories" consists of a panel of victims of abuse who discuss aspects of telling that are supportive, such as honoring the healing process, trusting one’s intuition, and taking time to recover. Lynn says that it took her 30 years to finally feel safe and sane enough to share her story. Read the full story in her memoir Beyond the Tears: A True Survivors Story.
