The next edition of the “MTSU On the Record” radio program will spread the good news about help for adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse.
Host Gina Logue’s interview with Dr. Debra Rose Wilson, associate professor of nursing, will air from 5:30 to 6 p.m. Monday, July 1, and from 8 to 8:30 a.m. Sunday, July 7, on WMOT-FM (89.5 and wmot.org).
Wilson is co-author of a study in which 32 female adult survivors underwent four weeks of stress management training classes.
After the training, the participants reported using more problem-solving approaches, more direction on seeking social support and a more positive perception of the stress factors in their lives.
The research shows that stress management techniques can help survivors improve their physical health, as well, since the severe psychological stress to which they were subjected as children is long-lasting and has an adverse impact on the immune system.
