Healing Private Wounds assistance workshops put the workshop participant in the shoes of the victim so they will better understand the challenges and many handicaps victims face.  During the sessions, we offer the participants pertinent information that will help them assist victims as they heal.  It will also help participants identify the signs of sexual abuse and understand the common behaviors and ripping effects of sexual abuse.  Additionally, we teach about “triggers” and how to aid the victim in overcoming those triggers.  Many other topics are covered as well.

This workshop is extremely helpful for spouses, family members, educators, clergy and church workers, and heath care providers.
