    Ask A Sex Abuse Survivor

    ASK A SEX ABUSE SURVIVOR (play)

    A FREE EVENT in observance of National Child Abuse Prevention Month. Made possible by a partnership between Stop the Silence® and NAASCA, under the Stop the Silence® Arts as Advocacy Program.

    PRAISE FOR ASK A SEX ABUSE SURVIVOR

    Childhood sexual abuse survivor Michael Broussard's interactive presentation "Ask a Sex Abuse Survivor" has been widely praised by survivors and mental health professionals 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 ever could have given me".

    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."

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

    AN INTERACTIVE EXPERIENCE

    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.
