To Shine a
Light: Awareness and the Transformation of Trauma
Loree Sutton, M.D., Brigadier General, US Army,
Co-Director & Founder, Threshold GlobalWorks (www.thresholdglobalworks.com)
This presentation is based on the award-winning documentary, “The
Invisible War” and how resiliency and support can transform
trama. The Invisible War, a groundbreaking investigative
documentary about the epidemic of rape within the U.S. military.
The film paints a startling picture of the extent of the problem
today, a female soldier in combat zones is more likely to be raped
by a fellow soldier than killed by enemy fire. The Invisible War
exposes the epidemic, breaking open one of the most under-reported
stories of our generation, to the nation and the world.
