Survivors Voices: Pauline Zimmerman, Virtual Interview
Thursday, February 18, 2020 6:30 pm EST

Our 3rd Survivor Voices event will feature Pauline Zimmerman, survivor, retired nurse and counselor and author of the just released
"I Heard and Saw Before I Knew."

"As a young woman, Pauline Zimmerman embarked on a journey to make sense of a childhood dominated by a cruel, controlling father, clouded by parental conflict and haunted, for her and her four siblings, by physical, mental, sexual and emotional abuse which went unacknowledged and unchallenged for years. Understanding how abuse within the family happens and why, and how to help sufferers deal with it, has been her life’s work." From the Publisher
