The legacy of childhood sexual abuse (CSA) can haunt survivors into adulthood. To have survived so far shows that you possess a number of valuable resources, not least your warrior within. This handbook will support the strength and courage of the warrior within by providing additional resources and exercises to help you take ownership of your recovery and begin to rebuild your life and embrace a better future.
The focus is on regaining control over the traumatic effects of CSA and to improve the quality of your life. As you can begin to take more control over your life, you will rediscover aspects of yourself that have gone into hiding, and reclaim these to become who you were meant to be. Your warrior within will become your inspiration so that you can restore the qualities that you most admire yet have had to deny. Your recovery will free you from the paralysing hold CSA has had over you and allow you to live a more authentic, fulfilling and meaningful life.
The book is for both female and male survivors of CSA and sexual violence, whether abused by male or female abusers, either within, or outside the family, or in a religious context. It is a portable resource which will support you when you most need it. It is designed to help you pace your recovery and to create a safe, secure base within that allows you to regain trust in yourself. In reconnecting to yourself you will be able to reconnect to others and the world. Together with your warrior within it will help you to triumph over trauma and move from surviving to thriving to feeling truly alive.
This handbook supports the work done by One in Four and all who work in this field. Its aim is to help survivors outside counselling sessions to cope and control the pace and direction of their healing. Family and friends, as well as counsellors will also find this a useful resource to understand the difficulties faced by survivors and the process of recovery.
