Perspective on Trauma

Building Perspective on Trauma, Loss, Attachment, Familial Pain, and Moving Forward: LaDonna Remy, MSW, LICSW

Removing Shame: “Know My Name” by Chanel Miller.


“We suffer from society’s shallow understanding. Disclosing one’s assault is not an admission of personal failure. Instead, the victim has done us the favor of alerting us to danger in the community. Openness should be embraced”. Chanel Miller.

It is a long journey for survivors of abuse laden with deep pain, heartache, and often shame, loss, and judgement. This young woman’s courage in both her healing journey and in sharing her story is admirable and needed. See Chanel Miller’s interview in TIME Magazine September 2020.
