This workshop provides information about the seldom seen reality of how sex abuse impacts the victim. Included is a “taking down myths” section and a simulation of what it looks like when the victim decides to get help. Participants also experiencethe Restoration Paradigm, a framework for reconnecting to authentic identity.
Rebecca Born, MSW, L.I.S.W.-S. Seeing the lack of resources for assisting victims of sex abuse, Rebecca envisioned and birthed a center to meet the long-term needs evidenced in the impact of the trauma. At Connections: A Safe Place, victims of sex abuse invited her into their journey and from them she learned of the needs for restoration. She has co-authored and designed the Restoration Paradigm in Beyond Recovery to Restoration – working with the trauma of sex abuse. Accompanying workbooks provide resources for the victim to do the work of restoration.
