Healing Neen - Author, Advocate, Speaker, Team Leader, National Center for Trauma-Informed Care -




For two decades, Tonier Cain hustled on the streets of Annapolis, Maryland, desperately feeding an insatiable crack addiction and racking up 83 arrests along the way. Rapes and beatings were a routine part of life; home was underneath a bridge or inside the locked cage of a prison. In 2004, pregnant and incarcerated for violation of parole, she was provided the opportunity to go to a community trauma, mental health and addictions program.

Feeling safe for the first time in her life, ‘Neen’ confronted the haunting childhood memories that she tried to numb with drugs: filth and chronic hunger, sexual assaults by neighborhood men, routine physical and mental abuse dished out by her drunken mother. Realizing for the first time that she had been a victim, she began to heal and reclaim power over her life. Today, she works for the National Center for Trauma-Informed Care, dedicating her life to being a voice for those still lost and silent as she travels the country, speaking and working one-on-one with women in prisons and hospitals.

MORE ON THE BOOK
Healing Neen isn’t just another story about victims and survivors or recovery and redemption. Ultimately, it’s a testament to God’s grace and presence. It’s the story of one woman’s path to salvation and a propitious glimpse into the potential buried deep within some of society’s most vulnerable people.

It’s also about the value of human life, the depth of suffering, and the heights of grace. And, not to be overlooked, it’s a convincing cri de Coeur for better practices in the way we treat and counsel those caught in the cycles of trauma, addiction, and serial incarceration. Cain brings us face-to-face with the ubiquitous corruption, neglect, and abuse in some of the systems meant to safeguard at-risk women and children, yet she leaves us with hope that things can change for the better.
