You might have experienced childhood abuse, date rape, sexually inappropriate verbal, physical, or visual exposure. You may have been coerced from a partner or spouse. All of that and more is called sexual abuse and misuse. It is the most intimate level of trauma. Many women tend to minimize or deny the effect of the incident(s). It is time to stop burying 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 and empathetic facilitators have experienced their own sexual trauma 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 Trauma recovery group
