A Toolbox for Healing
This is a support group for adults who have been sexually abused during childhood. The group meets once a week for 13 sessions and addresses the effects of the trauma, integrates new coping skills, and allows for processing of the abuse experience through discussion and expressive activities.
Ideally, a child who has been sexually abused has the opportunity to tell someone, be protected from further abuse, and begin a healing process promptly. If this does not happen, the child may carry the experience into adulthood. Feelings of confusion, sadness, fear, and anger may continue to affect the adult, causing low self-esteem, guilt, shame, and struggles with trust and intimacy. Relationships with partners, children, and family of origin may be difficult.
