Claudia Black describes the powerful journey that will lead the survivors of sexual abuse to find their inner strength, specialness, and dignity.
In adulthood, survivors experience the aftershocks of abuse, low self esteem, the inability to trust, difficulty with one’s sexuality and the inability to be successful. People who have been sexually abused often learn to medicate their pain through the use of alcohol, other drugs, or food. Abuse survivors often live with shame and guilt. They experience incredible powerlessness in their lives.
