Group for Women Survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse
For interest or inquiries, please send email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 847.240.5080.
The trauma from childhood sexual abuse often endures into adulthood and is manifested in emotional, psychological, and interpersonal difficulties. The experiences embody meanings about one’s self that reinforces isolation and contributes to an identity ridden with shame and self-blame. The abuse experience impacts the ability to sustain a healthy relationship with one’s self and others.
The therapy relationship helps facilitate recognition and understanding of the impact of trauma in women’s lives. In group, survivors find a common voice which conveys acceptance and emphasizes women’s power to heal. The group facilitates a safe environment where women can feel heard, supported, and empowered in their journey towards healing.
