Episode 124: #SurvivorStories Series with Shia Joyner on childhood domestic violence and stopping generational trauma
Manage episode 274477719 series 2456393
On this episode of the en(gender)ed podcast #SurvivorStories series, our guest is Shia Joyner, a survivor of childhood domestic violence and coercive control as an adult. Shia joins us today to explore the ways in which witnessing childhood abuse has shaped her perceptions about love, informed her relationships, and impacted her own experience of domestic abuse. We also explore the ways of therapy in her healing and in helping her develop a consciousness of dynamics of abuse which are necessary tools to stop the cycle. Throughout our conversation, we ask Shia to share #abusertactics, #signsofabuse, and #upstandertips.
During our conversation, Shia and I referenced the following resources and topics:
- bell hook's "love trilogy" including All About Love and Communion: The Female Search for Love
- Our interview with Jessica Taylor on "Why Women Are Blamed for Everything"
- Why "Anger Management" isn't for domestic abusers
- How "Restorative Justice" does not prioritize victim safety and accountability for abuse
