THERAPY AND SUPPORT GROUPS OF CHILDHOOD SEXUAL ABUSE

IF YOU HAVE GOT THIS FAR IN YOUR READING THEN, IF ONE CAN ASK YOU - PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE SORT OUT THE ABUSE. YOU WILL NEVER LOOK BACK ONCE YOU HAVE OVERCOME IT. IT IS POSSIBLE. BUT FIND THE RIGHT ONE TO HELP YOU - CRUCIAL!!!

THIS IS AN OUTLINE OF THE PROCESS THAT USUALLY HELPS THE REINTEGRATION PROCESS

Find a good Counsellor/Therapist. There are many who dont know how to process this particular aspect of therapy. Please check them out. If you are not happy move on. Your happiness is more importan than their bank account.

One who understands the journey. That has experience and successfully brought about healing. If necessary ask for references.

One of the opposite sex is normally very healing for the survivor. You will be amazed at the healing power of this interaction.

You have to be comfortable – because it will get rough before it gets better. If you are not comfortable go somewhere else. It is your right and duty to yourself.

Free sessions or state sponsored are not normally a good idea – the good ones usually leave and then you are left with someone who is learning on you – it can be very painful and you get no where. This can be very discouraging and may contribute to you giving up. That is not the way either.

You should leave every session contained and able to cope – if not find someone who can do it

Joining a support group is an excellent idea – you discover that you are not nuts after all. Most importantly you learn from each other.

Do workshops focussed specifically on sexual abuse as you will find that there are others like you who have similar problems – that already makes things easier. Group work is immensely valuable.
