Some victim advocates, therapists and researchers claim that victims of sexual trauma can never get over it... that they are forever destined to daily relive the horrors in flashbacks and nightmares and will never be able to live a normal life.
I do not agree. For over 25 years, I have worked almost exclusively with sex trauma victims and their families. While sexual abuse is traumatic and shakes the very foundations of individuals, families and society, it is not a life sentence where the victim is caught in its web forever and ever.
There is a good, healthy, happy, satisfying life waiting to be lived even after horrendous victimization.
