Holli Kenley Moved by Oprah's Show to Gift Books to Sex Abuse Victims

Marriage and family therapist Holli Kenley had decided to gift a copy of her book Breaking Through Betrayal: And Recovering The Peace Within to victims of childhood sexual abuse that spoke about their traumas on Oprah Winfrey’s show.

After watching Oprah’s interview with Tyler Perry and the two ensuing shows dedicated to the issue of trauma and sexual abuse of men, Holli says she was moved beyond words. These extraordinary men shared their deepest and darkest pain with tremendous courage and strength. For Holli, recovery begins by facing our past and our pain and acknowledging its impact in our lives. Continuing our healing means embracing other resources and trusted processes. To help with their recovery journeys, Holli would like to donate a copy of her book Breaking Through Betrayal: And Recovering The Peace Within to each man who appeared on Oprah’s show.

Holli says, “I believe, know, and trust that wellness awaits each of us. We choose the time.” To her, it would be an honor to become a part of that trust which these remarkable men have chosen the time to put in others by sharing their stories, by opening their hearts and trusting what lies ahead.
