Clarity’s support group studies for sexual abuse, help women and men realize the possibility to heal from the burden of shame and pain of sexual abuse. Past participants testify to feeling freedom after carrying the burden of their secret for so long. Others grieve their innocence lost, yet find healing and a new sense of confidence. Depression and anxiety lessen, as joy creeps back into wounded hearts.
Whether you have experienced childhood abuse; teenage date rape; sexually inappropriate verbal, physical or visual exposure; or coercion from a partner or spouse – all of that and more is called sexual abuse and misuse. Many men and women tend to minimize or deny the effect of the incident(s). It is time to stop burying the feelings, suppressing the anger, and denying the traumatic impact on your life. Find strength and freedom when truth is revealed. You are not alone! Compassionate facilitators have walked in your shoes and understand you.
“I never knew how much the sexual abuse in my past impacted so many areas of my life. I can now see how my false beliefs from that trauma influenced unhealthy decisions that I made. Relationships were difficult – I never wanted anyone close enough to learn about the shameful things that happened to me. I never felt worthy of being loved and cherished. I always felt damaged and used – dirty and abused.”past participant of Overcoming Sexual Abuse recovery group
