Abstract / Summary
The Coping with Sexual Abuse Workbook contains assessments and guided self-exploration activities for a variety of populations to help participants cope more effectively with the feelings and effects of sexual abuse. Each chapter of this workbook begins with an annotated table of contents with notes and examples for the facilitator. Each chapter contains two primary elements: a set of assessments to help participants gather information about themselves in a focused situation, a set of guided self-exploration activities to help participants process information and learn ways of coping with the sexual abuse they experienced. In our workbook, Coping with Sexual Abuse, the term ‘survivor’ identifies someone who has been sexually abused. To honor and empower that person to heal, the authors present a process for healing regardless of when or how the person was abused, the amount of work the person has completed related to the abuse issues, or the person’s present lifestyle. Each journey of recovery is personal and unique. Some survivors of sexual abuse move through similar challenges as they attempt to heal, and some have their own unique challenges. The Coping with Sexual Abuse Workbook is designed to be used either independently or as part of an integrated curriculum. You may administer any of the assessments and the guided self-exploration activities to an individual or a group with whom you are working, or you may administer any of the activities over one or more days. Feel free to pick and choose those assessments and activities that best fit the outcomes you desire. Chapter 1: Beginning the Healing Process, this chapter helps participants identify where they are in their healing process, and allows them to explore the abuse in a safe way so that they can begin the healing process. Chapter 2: Symptoms of Sexual Abuse, this chapter helps participants explore different types of symptoms that they may be experiencing that are related to the impact of past sexual abuse. Chapter 3: Sexual Attitudes, this chapter helps participants identify the specific attitudes related to their own sexuality. Chapter 4: Feelin' Good about Me!, this chapter helps participants identify how good they feel about themselves. This is a critical component along the journey to healing. All of the worksheets, assessments, and activities in the Coping with Sexual Abuse Workbook are reproducible for your convenience.
