If your partner has had sexual trauma, what is the best way to support them? That’s what Ashley Manta tackles in this clip, starting with her own experience of not-so-supportive family members. She outlines more constructive strategies for giving partners what they need – no more and no less. Ashley also recommends resources such as “Allies in Healing”, a book written for the partners of trauma survivors.
In this clip Ashley Manta shares her own past experiences of being molested and raped. It is a disturbing and important testimonial because she also shares how she moved past it. Ashley talks about both the internal struggles and the external reclaiming of her body (through tattoos).
