Treatment and Support Resources for Children and Parents
It's important for parents and other adults to provide children who have been sexually abused with the support and resources they need to heal and recover. The sexual abuse of a child can be devastating for both the child and the family, but help is available for both. Children are resilient and not all children who are sexually abused will need therapy. However, a professional experienced in working with children and family members impacted by sexual abuse can often help everyone talk about the experience and find positive ways to move forward.
Often there are questions about a child's concerning behaviors without knowing for certain what is causing those behaviors. Professional counselors can help parents and children assess what is needed and help plan for safety and health.
