Summary, etc.: Childhood Sexual Abuse (CSA) causes fear, shame, and an anxiety that promotes silence. Predators rely on that silence to remain undetected, imposing a lifetime of suffering on their victims. Invisible Scars tells the story of Johnna Janis, who reveals the life-long struggle she has faced from being abused as a child. Haunted by the emotional trauma, she comes to understand how it negatively impacted her self-image, her relationships, and nearly all significant decisions in her life. Armed with this self-awareness, she faces her own demons and in the process explores the tools and resources available to help victims like her overcome the debilitating effects of CSA.
