Please join me and welcome my guest and friend, sister advocate and author, Kate Swift to the show. Kate is a returning guest on my shows, and today we will be discussing her book, and personal memoirs "Nobody's Ragdoll". Kate's openness and willingness to talk about the traumatic childhood and early years of her life tell a story of child sexual abuse, incest and the damage it caused Kate as a young adult, as she worked through her healing process through art therapy, and journaling, writing poems and journaling to help make sense of the painful scars she carried from being victimized as a child within her own home. "This book is about survival, it is about how you can go to rock bottom and come back up again". Kate's journey is an amazing road to healing and Kate Swift founded This Tangled Web, a constituted charity in the UK to help other survivors of childhood sexual abuse, incest, sexual abuse, rape or any sexual trauma. Kate also founded R.S.O.S.A. Peer Support for survivors of csa/incest, sexual abuse. Kate Swift advocates with many advocates in the UK and around the world to break the silence and shame that surrounds it's victims, and survivors. She also continues to write and promote other survivors writing by publishing the R.S.O.S.A. Peer Support Groups poems in book form in hopes to raise the leve of awareness and education in the public eye about the serious issue of child sexual abuse, and to give them a voice, "Silent No More".
