Awaken to Abuse & Begin to Heal Your Life – a talk with author Karen Tate

September 18, 2023 @ 7:00 pm


Karen Tate, author of “Normalizing Abuse: A Commentary On Our Culture of Pervasive Abuse,” will be an author talk from 7 to 8 p.m. Monday, Sept. 18, at Bloomsbury Books, 290 E. Main St., Ashland.

Whether we can bring ourselves to admit it or not, many of us are experiencing or witnessing abuse and exploitation that’s being normalized in various aspects of our lives: from family and friends, society and culture, in the workplace and within corporations, government, academia, media, military, law enforcement, religion, etc. This has resulted in varying degrees of trauma, from the subtle and insidious to the more extreme that should be explored and healed as it affects how we see ourselves, others and decisions for our future.

Join 7-times published author, thought leader, podcaster, speaker, and abuse survivor, Karen Tate, as she helps us peel back these layers so we might purge this harm from our lives and society and heal from the resulting trauma.
