Emily Paulson make look familiar to our audience. We interviewed her and Celeste Yvonne to talk about their sober journey and work with The Sober Mom Squad. This time, Emily shared her story of 2 sexual assaults that happened to her while in college; once when she was raped and another time when she was sexually assaulted by Dr. Tyndall, the gynecologist at USC.
Because of the settlement between USC and Tyndall’s victims, Emily is now able to openly talk about what happened to her and how it affected her life. April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month and Emily is glad that she can now speak out, to her, that is a healthy coping mechanism that many victims use as part of the healing process.
Emily talks about how sexual assault can manifest for victims as well as other healthy coping mechanisms. We also talk about age appropriate conversations we can have with our children, especially those getting ready to head off to college.
Watch the entire interview to learn more about the incredible survivor that Emily is and also read her book that was key to her healing.
