Tolson 4 TEARS Talks on The Whole Issue
On October 17, 2011, advocate and author of Beyond the Tears: A True Survivor's Story Lynn C. Tolson talked with host Laurie Ann Smith. Laurie is the author of "A Life of Death: The Redemption" which is her harrowing story of child abuse, subsequent healing, and spiritual transformation. Laurie and Lynn talked on air survivor-to-survivor so that other victims of child abuse may be inspired to hope and healing. Lynn summarized the typical characteristics of a victim and an offender.
Laurie and Lynn discussed the effects that witnessing abuse has on children, and the patterns that they develop later in life. These conversations often provide insights to the audience for their own behavior in relationships. Laurie and Lynn combined their knowledge and experience to share with the audience tips and tools to address the needs of victims of domestic violence... so that they can survive and thrive. Laurie and Lynn talked on a previous show about the concept of hope and how it helped them on their similar paths along a healing journey.
