TIime To Heal, a project of P.E.I. Services for Adult Survivors of Sexual Abuse and Sexual Assault (SAS), is an award winning video about women Survivors of childhood sexual abuse. The script was developed directly from journal writings of Survivors, who were involved in the project from beginning to end.
The Survivors speak powerfully and honestly about the abuse they survived as children, its ongoing consequences, and what they now need in order to heal. These stories are accompanied by strong visuals which draw the viewer into the past experiences recalled by Survivors.

Débutant avec une reconstitution vivante dans laquelle une femme évoque ses souvenirs d'une expérience de violence sexuelle, ce film nous décrit avec un profond respect des femmes partageant leur volonté de contrôle sur leur vie. Le scénario du film s'inspire des notes des journaux intimes de ces femmes et leurs vies sont illustrées par certaines images-clés de ces textes. La structure du film est directement influencée par le modèle féministe de la thérapie.
