3 ‘Lean On Me’ - Supporters

About This Episode

When someone trusts you with the knowledge of their abuse, how you react can have profound consequences and implications for their recovery. What are some helpful ways to respond to a disclosure?

A survivor’s recovery journey can be greatly assisted by the care they receive from family, friends and other supporters… but this can be challenging at times for those close to a survivor.

It’s important to get the balance right in understanding and supporting a survivor, and attending to your own needs. In this episode we hear from partners and daughters about their journey with  survivors on their path to recovery.

Featuring (in order of appearance):

Janet, Missy, Tracy, Louise, Matthew O, Sheridan & Raelene Boxwell.
