Sexuality Issues for Adult Survivors of Incest and Child Sexual Abuse


 

Another excellent article on adult sexuality and the impact of childhood sexual abuse by Wendy Maltz, author of The Sexual Healing Journey.

This paper was published in 2001.  One of the key findings for me in researching this topic is that there is a real lack of scientific work done on this topic.  No doubt, sexuality can be a difficult topic for anyone, especially those with a history of abuse or sexual violence.  For the survivor, issues of shame, guilt and fear of experiencing triggers can severely inhibit healing and recovery.  It is a topic often avoided by patient and therapist in the recovery process.

More research, better therapies and a more open acceptance of the discussion is needed.
