Healing Years: A Documentary about Surviving Incest and Child Sexual Abuse
Without recovery, survivors of child sexual abuse face emotional struggle, substance abuse, post-traumatic stress, and the perpetration of abuse in their lives and families. This artfully produced documentary illustrates the poignant stories of incest survivors: former Miss America , Marilyn Van Derbur speaking out in the nation, Janice Mirikitani, President of Glide memorial Church, San Francisco , helping inner-city women substance abusers healing from incest, and Barbara Hamiliton, a 79-year old survivor ending three generations of incest in her family. For the sexually abused child, awareness and recovery is key to a secure and nourishing future. The Healing Years points the way.
