            Thank You Marilyn Van Derbur!

Thank you all for attending River Bridge Regional Center's Marilyn Van Derbur event!  We hope that you were as moved as we were by Marilyn's powerful and important message about the impact of child abuse and the amazing ability to heal.  Marilyn's strength and dedication to survivors is inspiring.  She is a beacon of hope for us all.  Her metaphor for incest creeping into every corner of her life, like a drop of red paint in a white bucket, clearly depicted the reach that abuse can have.  Marilyn also spoke of the ability to heal if you do the work.  At River Bridge Regional Center this is what we strive for, supporting children now so that they can heal.  

This event was dedicated to all of the brave children who have trusted us with what they need to say out loud .....

Where Silence Ends
Healing Begins
