To my Philadelphia ACEs Team, if you haven't heard from me in a while it's because I've been healing in the wake of secondary trauma and compassion fatigue from operating my van service to the prisons and creating a program for women who support an incarcerated loved one called, Real Resilience. Yes, I really did both simultaenously, with no staff (just lil ole' me), and it drained all my strength, emotionally and physically. But, I'm proud to report that I've figured out the best way for me and so many other women who share in the journey of loving someone on the inside to come out on top of this!
You know what I did? I started a Podcast. Battling compassion fatigue, I also realized that within the narrative of criminal justice reform, women are somehow being left out of the conversation and this is my way of adding them in the narrative.
So, without futher ado, I present to you the Real Resilience P.W.L. (Prison Wife Life) podcast! Here, you will hear firsthand experiences from women who have faced the vicarious trauma of incarceration but have remained resilient in through it all.
