Love Corazón is an incredibly wise (and accomplished) young woman who has just published her first book, Trauma Queen, about surviving childhood sexual abuse. In this interview, she shares some of her wisdom on how survivors can support each other, when "harm reduction" isn't enough, and the tyranny of self-care. Highlights include:

- How she got her book deal, and

- Why we need to shift from a paradigm of "self-care" to "communal care."
