What Advocates Need to Know About Therapy: With Considerations for Children, Teens, and Families

Advocates and therapists have important roles in promoting the healing of survivors of childhood and teen sexual abuse, as well as survivors’ nonoffending family members. When we work together, we can develop strong partnerships that ensure survivors have therapy options that are relevant to their needs. This offers survivors and their families a continuum of care that can help ease, and possibly hasten, the path of healing. This booklet was developed for advocates and aims to address many of the questions advocates and survivors have about therapy.
