**Please note that this episode contains some explicit descriptions of child sexual abuse.**

On this #SurvivorStories series episode, our guest is Kathy Picard, a childhood sexual abuse survivor, author of the book, “Life with My Idiot Family: A True Story of Survival, Courage and Justice Over Childhood Sexual Abuse” and advocate for Massachusetts’ reform in extending their criminal and civil statute of limitations for childhood sexual abuse. Kathy is here with us today to speak about the ways in which her abuse affected her relationships, her choices, and her eventual advocacy to help other survivors. We will pay special attention to #AbuserTactics, #SignsofAbuse, and have Kathy share #UpstanderTips on how we can do more to prevent and respond to abuse.
