Bethesda, MD – In partnership with Dr. Pamela J. Pine, the original Founder and Director of the non-profit, Stop the Silence®, a department of IVAT, Brave Healer Productions is proud to present a new collaborative book: Stop the Silence®, Thriving After Child Sexual Abuse.

“After a very personal family challenge with sexual abuse, I approached Pam and said, ‘We need to do this book!’ I believe that when we work together to educate the population who takes care of children, we will be one step closer to prevention. I’m making this part of the Brave Healer Productions mission, starting with the publication of this brave book. I’m immensely grateful to all of the authors for stepping up to share their stories.” Laura Di Franco
The Stop the Silence® book is a collaboration of 23 survivors and experts who offer personal stories and practices that are meant to help survivors. The book’s authors include advocates, policymakers, attorneys, healers, coaches, speakers, journalists, and other experts that have made child sexual abuse prevention their mission.
