The Secret to Survivorship with Autumn Burris

Sexual exploitation comes from vulnerability, not from choice. In this special extended episode, my guest, Autumn Burris, shares the story of how she learned that lesson first-hand. A former exploited woman who is now a smart, motivated advocate for victims of sexual exploitation, Autumn is the founder and director of Survivors for Solutions, which helps sexually exploited women through direct client services, advocacy, community education and public policy advocacy.

In the episode, Autumn discusses how one form of violence leads to another, and how violence can distort a person's self worth. She also shares the subtle ways we can talk to our children to break the cycle of dysfunction.
