Be An Inspiration!
Be An Inspiration! is one of 101 Things You Can Do To Prevent Child Abuse. It's all about healing, advocacy, and positive action. This book contains more than 40 resources to get you moving. It's time to change the dialog and the focus to all we can do. Be An Inspiration is a celebration of human potential to inspire survivors, parents & caregivers, and advocates for change.
As a survivor and in my work as an advocate, I witnessed a general desire to stop child abuse but a lack of ideas. People knew more about what not to do. Knowing how difficult it can be for anyone to talk about abuse, for various reasons, even if the intention is to prevent it, I wanted to shift the focus and the dialog with a challenge. Imagine a world where child abuse does not exist – where people are appreciated, cherished, encouraged, and supported. Be An Inspiration! shares that vision with ideas, suggestions – 101 of them – and more than 40 resources to promote positive action, advocacy, and healing. There truly is so much we can do to stop child abuse and create a more healthy and harmonious environment for everyone.
