Healing from Intrafamilial Abuse: The Roots of Non-Support

Presented by Meghan Hurley, LCSW
RBRC Mental Health Coordinator

How to support the non-offending Caregiver
A child’s resiliency to a trauma has more to do with the response and the support system, than with the actual type of abuse that occurred. “Secrecy traumas”, often involving child maltreatment are different and how these traumas are more likely to result in Post-Traumatic Stress.

River Bridge Presents Marilyn Van Derbur

Marilyn Van Derbur: A Survivor Story
Marilyn Van Derbur was crowned Miss America while she was a student at the University of Colorado. She received a Bachelor of Arts degree, with Phi Beta Kappa honors. As a childhood incest survivor, she has devoted much of her adult life to raising national awareness and understanding of sexual abuse and its long-term effects. In 1989 her family funded an adult incest survivor program in Denver, and in 1993 she co-founded two national not-for-profit organizations dedicated to public education and strengthening laws protecting victims of sexual abuse.

River Bridge is excited to bring Marilyn Van Derbur to Colorado! In this event, Marilyn Van Derbur, a former Miss America, tells the story of how she was sexually violated by her prominent, millionaire father from age 5 to age 18. She was 53 years old before she was able to speak the words in public, “I am an incest survivor.”

She has opened the door for tens of thousands of sexual abuse survivors to also speak the words, many for the first time, within their own families and communities.

Doors open at 5:30 pm
