Giving Voice To Sibling Sexual Abuse

Jane Epstein, 5WAVES co-founder, took the stage of the Boca Raton TEDx convention to raise awareness about sibling sexual trauma and abuse. 

“This is a terrific talk - powerful, moving, informative and full of hope.” 

~Peter Yates, Social Worker & thought leader in the subject of SST

"Having a fellow SSA survivor so smart, brave, and amazing like you representing us gives me the incredible feeling that, someday in the near future, parents won't run away from this complex subject like many of ours did, and that people like us will finally have the courage to speak up sooner. thank you, from the bottom of my heart.”
