Treatment For Sexual Abuse

Research shows that strong and immediate support from a protective parent/caregiver is a critical first step in a child’s recovery and resilience if they have experienced sexual abuse. Research also shows that treatment for individuals with sexually harmful behaviors is successful both with youth and adults.
