For most survivors of childhood sexual abuse, it is a secret they maintain and attempt to repress well into adulthood. While they hope that the pain will finally leave, often it remains within, severely impacting how they live. The first step in healing for the sexual abuse survivor is breaking the silence, speaking the truth, owning the reality of what happened. This video addresses the second step in breaking that silence, and that is talking about the most prevalent defenses and responses. Today, it is safer to speak to the injustice, unfairness, and the terror that were a part of the experiences, and you can speak with the safety that was not there as a child. By acknowledging what it is you needed to do to protect yourself, you will be taking an important step in putting the past behind you and moving from a life of shame to choice.
