Sexual Abuse Recovery
A 12- week Narrative Therapy Program For those who experienced childhood sexual abuse and/or sexual assault
- Narrative Therapy focuses on the ongoing effects of sexual abuse instead of the traumatic events, on the context rather than the cause or individual diagnosis.
- The focus of Narrative Therapy is not the resolution of the traumatic event – the event cannot be resolved/undone. Rather, it is on developing self-esteem and a selfperception of competence and empowerment.
- We will explore the meaning of the experience, both the personal and the political. We will take a solution-focused approach to the assault on self-perception which will lead to a re-description of ourselves, one that is free of stigmatizing labels; we will enhance our internal resources and overcome the ongoing effects of sexual abuse.
