Coping With Triggering News On Child Sex Abuse

In this podcast discussion that lasts just over an hour, Trauma Recovery Coaches Athena Moberg and Bobbi Parish talk about strategies for coping when triggering news is published in social media or mass media.

For child sexual abuse (CSA) survivors, terrible triggers can come up unexpectedly in news feeds. It’s important to know how to deal with these triggers as they happen, with effective self-care methods and reaching out to supports.

This is a unique and helpful video that shares solutions for a problem not acknowledged often enough in the mental health community – the media and its appetite for publishing horrendous and gratuitous news stories.

Trauma Recovery University is a podcast YouTube channel with many useful videos for CSA survivors of all genders, on a range of topics. Browse and subscribe to see more.
