Using the self-help guide How to Save Your Inner Wonder Woman: A Guide for Caregivers and Allies of Survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse Using Wonder Woman (2020), Kenneth Rogers, Jr. presents on the pitfalls of burnout and compassion fatigue on caregivers and allies. This presentation will center around DC comic’s Wonder Woman, explaining how many caregivers leave their own Paradise Island of safety and comfort in hopes of helping others overcome their past trauma. Wonder Woman’s identity as Truth Queen offers an excellent example for caregivers and allies to understand that if caregivers and allies of survivors of childhood sexual abuse do not learn to practice good trauma stewardship they will never learn to achieve balance and become the master of two worlds.
