Childhood Sexual Abuse Links

It has been awhile since I have shared very many links from other blogs with you. Here are some that have been helpful to me lately:

1.  Triggers; what are they and how do we work through them? @

2.  What I Wish I Had Known @

3.  15 Things I Wish I'd Known About Grief @

4.  Grooming - How Do Sexual Abuse Predators Get Into Our Lives? @

5.  Intimate Partner Violence @

6.  Adolescent Male Victims Of Sexual Abuse - The Psychological Effects @

7.  Incest Survivors United Voices of America @

I know the Intimate Partner Violence article and the article about Grief aren't about Childhood Sexual Abuse as the name of the blog post says but they could be in the life of a survivor. As children being abused, you have much grieving to do in the healing process. Every time an issue comes up to be healed, you start the healing with facing the grief that comes up because of the losses in your childhood. Many of us who are sexually abused also grow up with Domestic Violence in our homes. Many grow up to live with intimate partner violence because of your poor sense of self-worth that says you don't deserve better treatment from your loved ones.

Thank you Patricia for your willingness to be open, share your story, and share the stories of other survivors who want to help. I count it a blessing to have you both as a collegue and a friend. Keep up the great work you do for survivors of CSA everywhere!
