Podcasts

These podcasts support the holistic mental, emotional, and physical well-being of sexual and domestic violence advocates like you.

Get to know the RAFT program or continue your training with our free interactive podcasts. These programs were built to address the specific needs of advocates by sharing real stories and experiences of people like you.

We combine life coaching skills and positive psychology theory to support advocates who are learning how to stand in their power, respect themselves first, and break the cycle of shame and self-criticism. 

Whether it’s an educational talk, creative exercises, simple yoga, or meditation, our podcasts can provide the specific support you need to improve your well-being. 

If you have a question or scenario that you’d like addressed in a future podcast, please contact us.
