The Family's Role in Recovery from Sexual Abuse

Sexual abuse can be psychologically devastating to children who are victimized. But children don’t operate independently – often it is the entire family unit that is dysfunctional and abuse can be repeated over generations and in different branches of the family. Conversely, sometimes support from family members who weren’t involved in the abuse can be an important part of a survivor’s treatment process. This Thursday we’ll learn about the roles family members play – harmful and beneficial – in recovery from sexual abuse.  Artwork from The Unspoken Truth Exhibit  Listen to the Show
