Called "an excellent illustration of the healing power of art and community" by Psychologist Margaret Sayers and "a force for prevention of abuse by raising awareness and moving hearts" by survivor Tremain Smith, Ask a Sex Abuse Survivor has been praised by mental health professionals and survivors alike. The show employs an innovative mix of storytelling, audience participation and improvisation to spark a real time conversation about the impact of sexual abuse on children and adult survivors. Survivors are encouraged to attend and share their own stories in the feedback breaks. Spouses, significant others and friends of survivors will also find the show informative and uplifting. And while the show is on a fairly somber topic, there is also a healthy amount of humor, and ultimately, a powerful message of hope and healing: There is life after trauma and not only can we survive, we can thrive.
