Sexual Abuse (Victim) - The Parenting Relationship

Parenting Awareness: sex abuse victims face a storm of issues from the world within themselves, and often struggle with their ability to cope with the people and events around themselves. Solutions to their problems often seem out of reach, and indeed, some solutions may not be fully realized for years to come. Often when teenagers struggle with sexual abuse they develop behaviors that you may not recognize as associated with victimization. Difficulty in trusting adults (teachers, parents, family members, etc.) from an early age, may have facilitated the development of various sexual abuse symptoms, including a defiant disposition and low self-esteem. Regardless of what negative issues may have developed over the years, there is still a young person in there - very likely an intelligent young person - looking for real solutions to his or her struggles with sexual victimization.

Thousands of families throughout the country have turned to specialized schools - residential treatment centers - to help their children find answers to their sexual victimization problems, related behavioral issues, and experience academic success. Most of these schools are meant to help, rather than to punish victimized teens. They provide 24x7 supervision, guidance, and support. It is important for you to understand that such schools are distinguished among residential treatment centers as highly structured, though less punitive than traditional residential treatment centers.

Nonetheless, in the treatment industry there are many schools that DO NOT provide a high standard of care, not to mention effective academics for the abused child. These schools are avoided by InsightPros. Instead, we suggest a careful, intentional process in seeking help for any teen struggling with sexual abuse issues, working hand-in-hand with a licensed therapist. A school may be part of the answer. But it might be a mistake. Our services provide access to many professionals, resources, and information that can help you decide if a specialized school, outpatient program, and/or therapy is right for your teen.

But don't forget, regardless of what solutions you seek beyond the walls of your own home, those solutions will eventually need to make their way back into your home. You should seriously consider using The Total Transformation Program® to help make this process successful.
