Currently captivated by the NPR podcast “Believed,” which takes us inside the story of sexual predator Larry Nassar, the former USA gymnastics Olympic team doctor and osteopathic physician at Michigan State University.
This story is an incredible window into how untreated trauma, specifically sexual abuse, has a lasting effect on our emotional and physical wellbeing. It sheds light on how individuals cope when they are not “believed” and the process of healing this wound.
The podcast highlights the sheer bravery exhibited by the woman that came forward to speak about their sexual abuse and to confront their perpetrator face to face. These woman are the definition of strength, advocacy, and inspiration.
