Abuse is no longer just happening to the neighbor down the street or the girl on television. It’s not just a random father creeping into their child’s room at night, the unaccountable pedophile priest or a case of domestic violence. It’s even beyond predator capitalism and abusive authority figures.

“We’re horrified and appalled by the opioid epidemic, but should there be any surprise? People are medicating themselves to blunt the trauma. We are an abused, exploited and traumatized society; we must recognize our abusers and begin to heal ourselves,” says Tate.

Karen's book Normalizing Abuse takes the reader on a serious yet heartfelt journey of discovery, not just of oneself, but also looking into many aspects of our everyday lives, such as academia, government, corporations, the workplace and media, family and friends, society and culture, religion, military, and more, to peel back the veneer hiding rampant insidious abuse and exploitation.

In Normalizing Abuse, abuse survivor, Karen Tate, takes off her rose colored glasses and confronts theacculturated abuse in society. She brings this pervasive and insidious poison to the fore so others can see, understand, and take steps to obliterate toxic elements from their lives and begin down the road to recovery.

Thought leader, speaker, seven-times published author, and activist, Karen Tate's work is at the crossroads of spirituality, personal transformation and social justice. She is hostess of the long-running Voices of the Sacred Feminine podcast, considered a treasure trove of wisdom for more than a dozen years. A Caring Economy Conversation leader and Power of Partnership presenter with the Center for Partnership Studies,  Karen also earned certification from Smith College in the Psychology of Political Activism: Women Changing the World.
