Author Talk: Silent No More

Darryl Smith dreams of a world where children no longer have to fear being abused by those they should be able to trust to care for them. 

On the publication of his latest book, Darryl who is a survivor himself and NZ ambassador for both the Archangel Foundation and NAASCA (National Association of Adult Survivors of Child Abuse), talks to local TV broadcaster Darryl Baser about how and why he continues to fight against a system he feels is ignoring the plight of children in state care.

Join us as Darryl opens up about his life, his research and how he endures.

WARNING: This talk is likely to include potentially challenging content, including child abuse and discussion of suicide ideation which may be triggering to survivors.
