Supporting Survivor Sexualities

Sex and sexuality are important and integral parts of most young people’s lives, and survivors of sexual abuse and assault are no exception. In fact, survivors may find it more necessary to explore their sexual identity and more complex to navigate engaging in sexual activity. This may be due to a real, projected, or feared impacts of sexual assault on aspects of sexuality, including sexual identity, sexual relationships, and sexual experiences. As advocates, it’s crucial we provide space for survivors to process sex and sexuality after experiencing sexual violence. This resource is designed to increase advocates' skills and comfort level when talking to survivors about sex.
