For the past twenty years, Chidi Asika-Enahoro has been working extensively with the mentally ill, substance abusers, and criminal offenders in Connecticut, New York, and Florida. She was inspired to write Innocence Interrupted by her own personal childhood experiences while living in Africa and England.
As both a survivor of childhood molestation and several rapes through the years, as well as her background as a professional mental health consultant and senior disability analyst, Chidi is uniquely qualified to approach this sensitive yet critical topic from a variety of perspectives.
