Tonight's special guest is E Diane Champé from Baltimore, a returning NAASCA family member, here to update us about the work she's been doing with her E Diane Champé Institute. She's known as "The Survivors Champion" and has been an active member of the recovery community for many years. Diane's work is devoted to the tens of millions of adult survivors of child abuse and neglect who get up every day and try to work and function in a world that seems to not care about us. Her program, the SERVE Zone (Safety, Education, Resources, Validation, & Empowerment), provides opportunities for survivors to learn, practice and develop relational, communication, and other life skills in a relaxing, safe environment. Diane is the author of the book "Conguering Incest: My Life as a Trauma Survivor." She writes, "As a survivor of horrendous childhood abuse and neglect, I understand the loneliness and hopelessness of living behind closed doors with a terrible secret. I have also felt the warmth, compassion and acceptance in relationships which have allowed me to feel free and hopeful." She goes on, "We will provide the validation and encouragement survivors deserve to facilitate their healing." She explains the Institute's Centers "will not provide any type of professional therapy or self-help program. Instead, they'll be places to promote community, connection, and wellness, which the experts have stated is vital to promote engagement with the world."
