Fiona is the story of child sexual abuse survivors everywhere–abused by the people they know and trust, and most often silently carrying the pain and shame of that abuse into their adult lives and relationships. Only when we are willing to face what happened to us, feel the pain, and grieve the loss of our innocence, can we begin to move forward in a constructive way. When we can talk about what happened to us openly and unashamedly, then we know we are well on our path to recovery and a happy, healthy life.
TO SURVIVORS: Please know that you are not alone in your journey–there are many of us–and together, we can make a brighter future for our children and for ourselves. Check out our Survivors THRIVE Facebook Group for a supportive network that shares resources, events, modalities and more. Or join our movement: there are many simple ways you can make a difference in the lives of children and survivors, from purchasing cool merchandise to participating in a concert or sharing your story through art, music or poetry. Join us! (For more survivor resources, see our Get Help and Healing Resources pages.)
TO FAMILY MEMBERS and PARTNERS OF SURVIVORS: We recognize that being with a survivor has its own challenges, from lack of trust to unexpected triggers. Feel free to check out our Healing Resources page for some books and modalities for family and friends of survivors. Or join our movement and tell your story. There are many partners, family, and friends who also need support in understanding how to deal with a loved one who has been through the trauma of childhood sexual abuse. Your story could help others in their own relationships with CSA survivors. (Click here for more information about sharing your story.)
