    Ask A Sex Abuse Survivor

    ASK A SEX ABUSE SURVIVOR (play)

    Childhood sexual abuse survivor Michael Broussard's interactive presentation Ask a Sex Abuse Survivor has been widely praised by mental health professionals and survivors alike.

    Clinician Maureen O’Regan of Orleans Psychotherapy Associates said, "I walked away with an understanding of the survivor experience that no book, training, or even my years of work as a therapist could have ever given me".

    Psychologist Margaret D. Sayers called the show "an excellent illustration of the healing power of art and community".

    Survivor and New England Director of SNAP (Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests) Dave O’Regan said, "I came away from the performance uplifted, braver, and will always remember Michael’s courage and draw strength from it when needed in my own life."

    Combining first person storytelling with audience interaction and improvisation, Broussard tells his story of survival and healing from abuse, while inviting comments and questions several times throughout the presentation.

    Audience members are encouraged to ask anything, contribute anything, share in any way they see fit. Broussard himself is a walking, talking case study, able to give candid answers to questions about the survivor experience from all stages of his life.

    Broussard has taken Ask a Sex Abuse Survivor as far South as Atlanta, GA and as far North as Brattleboro, VT, and has partnered with the non-profit education, support and advocacy organization Stop the Silence to take the presentation all over the country, through the organization's Arts as Advocacy Program.
