Building Resilience: Working with Adult Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse
Facilitated by Olga Trujillo and Leah Green | Recorded on June 9, 2021
Description: Survivors of child sexual abuse live in silence and fear, uncertain how to seek help or who to tell. This silence often extends well into adulthood as they navigate a life deeply impacted by trauma experienced in childhood. Advocacy programs were created to help survivors of sexual violence heal from trauma but how do we help when the trauma was so long ago? Join Leah Green from the IowaCASA/Resource Sharing Project and Olga Trujillo an expert on Dissociative Identity Disorder for an interactive conversation on the needs of adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse. They will discuss the realities of child sexual abuse, the manifestations into adulthood, and what healing looks like.
