Childhood Sexual Trauma

In this course, Dr. Jo Wakeela Jones shares her story of sexual violations that occurred when she was a small child and another when she was a teen: “With each of my assaults, my family didn’t know what to do. They didn’t know how to help me. It was easier just to pretend like it was over and done. The problem was, it wasn’t over for me. I felt different now. I felt alone. I no longer fit in the way I used to. Worse, I was filled with shame. But I covered all that up. Not just for one month or for one year, but for decades. Then, I discovered the Soul Injury self-help tools.”

Course Instructor

Dr. Jo Wakeela Jones

Licensed Educator

Dr. Jo Wakeela Jones has her doctorate degree in healthcare education and has worked as an executive in various health care settings for 40 years. She says her over-achieving behaviors have actually been a numbing agent to hide the pain of four different sexual assaults: “The smile on my face was fake. My joy was manufactured. I was performing a good imitation of happiness and sorrow, but I had difficulty making meaningful eye contact because I was afraid my scars would be seen. My soul was hurt. I physically and emotionally ached. I remained broken inside for many decades.” Dr. Jo tells her story of pain, self-discovery, and how she used the Opus Peace self-help tools to help heal the relationship she had with herself.

Deborah Grassman


Few people have been with 10,000 dying veterans; Deborah Grassman is one VA hospice Nurse Practitioner who has. Dying veterans taught her lessons about how to attain personal peace. Ironically, those lessons came from people who had been trained for war! As a result, a phenomenon known as “Soul Injury” has now emerged as a relevant healthcare issue for the public. She contends that 10,000 dying veterans have lessons that the rest of us need to learn! Deborah is the author of two books, Peace at Last and The Hero Within. She is a contributing author for four textbooks, has 25 published articles, and there are 5 documentary films featuring her work.
