I'm Elizabeth M. Johnson.
My mission is to help people recognize and understand that sexual abuse can affect health and wellness long after the abuse has ended. I know this three ways:
- I study trauma and abuse like other people study Game of Thrones. In other words, voraciously;
- I've been working with survivors and in abuse education since 2005;
- I'm a survivor myself.
A note about my company name: The name "Outside The Mom Box", comes from a belief that labels ("mom", "survivor", "minority") only separate and other people and in doing so, cause more harm than good.
