Tonight's special guest is Ellyn Roberts Bell from Pacifica, California, and Stacey Ault Bell from Sacramento, California (not related), co-authors of "Singing with the Sirens: Overcoming the Long-Term Effects of Childhood Sexual Exploitation," available at Amazon. Poetic, hopeful, and powerful, "Singing with the Sirens" is a call for wounded women everywhere to reclaim their own truth, spirit, and to sing with their authentic voice. Both are trained as social workers and are they're partners in Bella Invictus Consulting for Personal and Social Change. Both are also survivors of childhood sexual abuse and exploitation. Numerous women in our culture have experienced shame, degradation, and despair as a result of having been sexually traumatized early in life. In "Singing with the Sirens," experts Ellyn Bell and Stacey Bell address the long term complex trauma that results from the sexual abuse and exploitation of girls and young women, drawing on their personal and professional experiences to explore the link between the sexual abuse of children, issues of attachment and safety, and the commercial exploitation of young people. But this is not strictly a scholarly book or a memoir of personal experience; rather, the authors address this problem from a perspective of self-realization and transformation, taking the reader on a journey through mythological tales toward finding healing from within.
