Time To Speak


Because I Love You ® , , VA
                "To every thing there is a season,

and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

...a time to keep silence, and a 

time to speak;

THE SILENCE HAS BEEN BROKEN.....
      THE TRUTH HAS BEEN SPOKEN


•   1 of every 4 children will experience sexual      abuse before age 18
•    most abusers are family or friends of              family and are known to the child
•    not all offenders are pedophiles - there are      different types of abusers
•    childhood sexual abuse is not a "label" or      diagnosis
•    sexual abuse is connected to serious            emotional, behavioral and health patterns

TIME TO KEEP SPEAKING…



We need an interdisciplinary perspective which considers the “human ecology” ( connect to bullseye) of childhood sexual abuse, including:

Child development
Family systems, needs, and support
Offender diagnosis and treatment
Human sexuality
Politics and law
Public health epidemic prevention
Historical, philosophical and spiritual issues
"Now is the time to speak with curiosity, courage and compassion"
