It’s not just about counselling

away-1040726_1920My research is looking at recovery from childhood sexual abuse (CSA). As a survivor I think that recovery is about much more than counselling, it’s about how we relate to others, how we explain life, how we see ourselves, how we express ourselves – and much more. You might have a different opinion. I’ve got a survey prepared that aims to understand how other survivors and victims see recovery. It’s going through ethics approval at the University of Sheffield at the moment and once it’s ready I’ll post the link on here.

In the meantime I’ve created this website as my space to post about my research and CSA issues in general. One of the things I’d like to do is write about the research that has been carried out already and what it tells us about victims and perpetrators. So my next post will be about that.
