Dare to confront the unsettling reality of abuse in our society?

This episode brings a powerful conversation with Karen Keavy, an educator, counsellor, and author, committed to helping both children and adults recover from the aftermath of abuse.

Karen takes us through a startling statistic that 39.6% of children experience domestic violence in their lifetime, driving home the importance of awareness and intervention. 

As part of our discussion, Karen divulges her personal journey and the significant impacts of abuse on children.

With a focus on the pivotal role educators can play, we explore how they can spot signs of abuse, providing a nurturing environment for their students.

Our conversation further expands on the unique challenges faced by the current generation of children, including online bullying and exposure to explicit content.

Understanding these long-term effects, we underscore the necessity of educating children on managing their emotions and thoughts.

The conversation takes a transformative turn as we talk about the therapeutic benefits of mindfulness meditation for children, adults, and trauma survivors.

Karen shares her experiences teaching meditation in schools and how it benefits children.

We also delve into her children's book, Angel, which deals with intra-familial sexual abuse, serving as a valuable resource for adult survivors and children alike.

The episode concludes with a discussion on various forms of abuse, the importance of self-care, and how we can evolve into our most significant supporters.

This episode promises to be an enlightening journey, shedding light on a dark yet prevalent aspect of society.
