    The interactive show Ask A Sex Abuse Survivor has been widely praised by survivors and professionals in the field for its value as a healing and educational tool.

    We have taken it all up and down the East Coast and now we want to take it all across the country, to educate audiences and support survivors nationwide.

    Here are some testimonials from attendees:

    Survivor and New England Director of SNAP (Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests) Dave O’Regan said, "I came away from the performance uplifted, braver, and will always remember Michael’s courage and draw strength from it when needed in my own life."

    Psychologist Margaret D. Sayers called the show "an excellent illustration of the healing power of art and community".

    Clinical Psychologist Dr. Elizabeth Dale Blair said "As a psychologist who treats survivors of childhood sexual abuse, I would highly recommend this show to anyone who struggles with the emotional aftermath of these traumas."

    Clinician Megan L. Doyle of SOAR (Survivors of Abuse in Recovery) called it "a powerful and moving testimonial to the impact of childhood sexual abuse throughout a lifetime".

    Clinician Maureen O’Regan of Orleans Psychotherapy Associates said, "I walked away with an understanding of the survivor experience that no book, training, or even my years of work as a therapist could have ever given me".

    Ask A Sex Abuse Survivor has been presented for audiences of survivors, medical and mental health professionals, social workers, law enforcement officials, and others associated with the response to this kind of abuse.

    Recent notable performances include the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, and the Philadelphia Children's Alliance Conference "A Team Approach to Child Abuse Intervention".

    A packed crowd at the Children's Alliance conference gave the presentation an average score of 4.5 out of 5 and comments included: "It will help me to do my job more effectively" and "It gives insight into the mentality of a victim which should inform all our work".
