Recorded on July 2, 2020

Guest Speaker: Dr. Alissa Ackerman

How do people survive sexual abuse?
How do we come to thrive in its wake?

This conversation focuses on how people can survive and thrive in the current environment. It explores what we can learn from restorative justice to help people recover their lives in the wake of sexual abuse.

A basic tenet of Restorative Justice is that those affected by abuse should be able to participate in its resolution. Through the approaches Dr. Ackerman embodies, people who have been abused can experience connection and hope.
