Christine Hatchard, a Monmouth University psychology professor, is heavily involved in raising awareness of a startling issue. Hatchard works to improve the lives of girls who were sexually abused by their mothers.
According to the Asbury Park Press, the educator has launched a support group called Making Daughters Safe Again (MDSA) and produced a documentary titled Who Will Love Me? Four Stories of Mother-Daughter Sexual Abuse.
"Our hope at MDSA is that one day, the world will be more aware of mother-daughter sexual abuse so that little girls can be saved, and that survivors can receive the information, support and validation that they deserve," Hatchard told the news source. "Many survivors of mother-daughter sexual abuse have never met another survivor and once they are able to do so, it is often a validating and life-changing experience."
Individuals who are interested in helping survivors of serious trauma may want to consider careers in psychology. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, overall employment of these professionals is expected to increase over the next several years.
