From the Front of the Room: Sharing Your Childhood Story of Domestic Violence 

Casey Keene for NRCDV (December 2017)

This guide, designed for adult survivors, explores the power of storytelling and the unique value that stories of adult children exposed to domestic violence can bring to social change movements, offering guidance for 1) assessing readiness, 2) finding your voice, 3) clarifying your message, and 4) attending to your wellness. Considerations for speaking to key audiences are also included.

This resource is a companion piece to the NRCDV publication, From the Front of the Room: A Public Speaking Guide for Domestic Violence Survivors & Advocates (September 2011). It is intended for adult survivors of childhood exposure to domestic violence at any point along the path to healing and resilience – whether you identify as a survivor, an advocate, or both – as a capacity-building tool for harnessing the power of your story to impact change.
