Journey On Through A Global Epidemic w/Ben Black

Journey On is Back! Join D.J. and guest, Ben Black, as they discuss what it means to be survivors of a global epidemic - child sexual abuse! Ben identifies as a queer person who has suffered greatly. He goes in-depth to discuss how he survived being abused within the Catholic church, and how he and others fought back - to be heard and to be seen. Ben discloses that his father is also a child sex abuse survivor, and was also abused by a clergy member. Intergenerational child abuse trauma is real and must be discussed, and addressed.  Hosted by D.J. Burr - a Seattle psychotherapist, screenwriter, and author. Check out DJ's linktree: https://linktr.ee/djable for links to books, shows, etc. Each episode of Journey On features real-life accounts of sexual abuse and assault. You may be triggered by what you hear. I advise self-care tools; reaching out to a friend, seeing your therapist, picking a new time to listen to the show, or even listening with a group of friends.
