IBB LAW: Impact of Childhood Sexual Abuse
Childhood or historic abuse can have a profound impact on a survivor’s life – including trust issues, depression, anger and other effects.
In this video, child sexual abuse lawyer, Malcolm Underhill, and Uxbridge psychotherapist, Keeley Taverner, discuss intimacy and trust issues for victims of abuse.
Victims often find it difficult to trust adults, and this could make it difficult for them to contact therapists and other support resources.
A good therapist will not ask you for the intimate details of the abuse. A victim will direct the therapist.
