Preventing Child Sexual Abuse In Youth-Serving Organizations

Preventing Child Sexual Abuse In Youth-Serving Organizations by Norman D. Bates & Christine Army MAChild sexual abuse (CSA) is an insidious crime that can destroy the lives of innocent children and leave their families devastated.

"Child sexual abuse involves any sexual activity with a child where consent is not or cannot be given. This includes sexual contact that is accomplished by force or threat of force, regardless of the age of the participants, and all sexual contact between an adult and a child, regardless of whether there is deception or...

A Voice in the Tide: How I Spoke My Truth in the Undertow of Denial and Self-Blame

A Voice in the Tide: How I Spoke My Truth in the Undertow of Denial and Self-Blame by Nancy Shappell

A New England woman, fighting muted incest memories with toxic self-injury, is on a mission for the mother who denies sacrificing her, to validate the family truth before one of them dies. After decades of self-blame and illness Nancy realizes, the very things she had fought against, detoxing her own fear and anger, living her truth, and loving herself, were the only real sources of validation.

“Things happen in my house I have no words to describe. They bury and hide in places forgotten. But I will remember forgetting. I am the holder of the truth”

“As long as I am living to please, rebel...

As such, he highlights a need for a clearer shared terminology among professionals and encourages...

Perspectives on Verbal and Psychological Abuse

Perspectives on Verbal and Psychological Abuse by Dr. Roland Maiuro PhD

There are dozens of ways to be emotionally abusive: unwarranted criticism, sighs, a condescending tone of voice, disgusted looks, and "the cold shoulder," to name a few. In some respects, emotional abuse is more devastating than physical abuse because victims are more likely to blame themselves. While a substantial amount of research has focused on physical forms of domestic violence, there has been little information available about more subtle forms of violence such as psychological, emotional, and verbal abuse. This book, a collection of acclaimed articles from the peer-reviewed journal ...

Nevermore

Nevermore by Cade Soleil

Each incident of childhood sexual abuse can foster up to twenty-six basic reactions that range in type and degree. They can manifest as mistrust, social isolation, memory problems, self-blame, and they often even result in repeated victimizations and self-harm.

Prior to my training as a counselor, I had thought that those twenty-six consequences were unique to me...that I was alone in my pain. Once I realized that I was not alone and also that these reactions were totally normal responses to abuse, I was determined to find a way to show others that they, too, were not alone...that they were also...
