Lynn Marie is a deaf SRA Victor who was deeply hurt by her interpreter at a healing conference due to lack of compassion, not accurately translating what Lynn was saying, and ultimately leaving Lynn alone at the hotel when she was supposed to help Lynn get home. This stirred up feelings from her childhood abuse that led to months of healing to get back to a feeling of safety and control over her life. Lynn is asking for interpreters to have a deeper understanding of SRA survivors along with having special needs to help them as part of their team of healing instead of causing more issues that what was there to begin with. You can find Lynn Marie's testimony in season 1, episode 29 of this podcast.
