The Abuse Was My Fault Because…

The most damaging aspect of the abuse experience, for me, was having to dismantle the strong sense that it was my fault. The abuse left behind a psychologically damaging feeling of being inherently shameful or simply ‘bad’. I’m bad. That’s it. That’s who and what I am. That’s how I used to think and feel. Today’s video explains three more reasons why a child might feel that way when they’ve been sexually abused.

The point of my videos is to help people understand child sexual abuse from a survivor’s point of view, so that we are all better equipped to help both children and adults who have been affected. Feel free to share my videos if you think they may help someone.
