Resources and Educational Materials

On this page, you’ll find links to articles, books, organizations, and more, that address the topics of sexual assault, childhood abuse in varying forms, and the associated mental health impacts and challenges.  You can also follow me on Facebook and Twitter for new article discoveries as I would run out of space if I tried to post them all on this page!  Lastly, I highly recommend following the Somatic Experiencing Trauma Institute on Facebook as they post wonderfully informative articles daily. 

Of course, I’m always on the lookout for more fantastic sources of information and assistance – if you have one that isn’t in one of the lists below, let me know.
