Host and Producer, Dr. Carol Provo, continues her mission to expose the character of abusers, manipulators, and narcissists by giving victims and survivors a chance to speak out, own their stories, and continue the healing process. Some of them have been lied to, tricked, beaten, and left for dead with their self-esteem shattered. Now, each of them will take their power back by telling their side of the story!
Season 2, beginning October 5, 2021, will feature several difficult interviews that were even hard for me to hear as a clinician. Remember audience, it can be VERY difficult to bring up past emotional injuries and share them publicly, but that is what you will hear this season. Some of them may sound nervous and their speech monotone, others will sound angry and may use bad language, while others may even start to cry - and rightfully so, given the betrayal and abandonment, they have experienced. However, ALL of them have survived and are hoping to help someone else. So, please let’s give them a silent applause or prayer for their courage, strength, and resilience.
