Svava Brooks delivers inspirational speeches on the critical subjects of preventing childhood sexual abuse (CSA) and trauma. She does this from a point of view of one who has done the hard work of healing from her own abuse. Her position is one of inspiration and hope as she seeks to inspire and empower youth serving organizations and their constituents with iconoclastic and thought-leading messages about healing; this born of 20 plus years of scholarly work and personal therapy. Svava seeks to end the terrible pandemic of CSA and the impacts it has on generations as well as the deeper impacts it has on how these generations interact with society and beyond.
If you are looking for a powerful, real, and loving voice on CSA and trauma, look to Svava. Svava seeks to expand her message and would be an invaluable resource for your convention, documentary, podcast, radio, or television segment.
