In this week's episode of Journey On, D.J. talks with sexual assault survivor turned author and advocate, Eddie Kedge. In 1980, Eddie was kidnapped and sexually assaulted by a serial predator. Eddie says he is a "ten percenter", referring to the statistic that only ten percent of those abused are abused by a stranger. Here his inspiring journey. To Learn more about Eddie, check out his book Song of Highway 1 South: A Boy's Journey Through Abuse, Neglect and Fantastic Sunsets. Find Eddie on Social Media: Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.
Hosted by D.J. Burr - a Seattle psychotherapist and author of I Just Wanted Love: Recovery of a Codependent, Sex and Love Addict.
Each episode of Journey On features real life accounts of sexual abuse and assault. You may be triggered by what you hear. I advise self-care tools; reaching out to a friend, seeing your therapist, picking a new time to listen to the show, or even listening with a group of friends. Take care of yourself first.
