Just back from attending Mike Lew's session. It was attended by 22 survivors, only two were not American, one from New Zealand and myself. The full day program was healing as we had the opportunity to work together in groups as well as in pairs. It is always reassuring that you are not alone. Meeting fellow survivors face to face is so therapeutic. One important point Mike made was the abuse did not happen to you, it was done to you. We must also not use the term "my abuser" you did not choose them or ask for it to happen.
Tomorrow I attend the partners program with my wife and the international panel in the afternoon.
