Has anyone found a good forum for adults dealing with sexual abuse as a child?

Thanks

Hi W2W:

I can't vouch for any of these, but they look promising:

http://www.havoca.org/HAVOCA_home.htm

http://www.aest.org.uk/

http://www.dmoz.org/Society/Support_Groups/Sexual_Abuse/Survivors/

I would also like to suggest some reading, based not from my own library but from the Amazon rating system:

http://www.amazon.com/Haunted-Marriage-O...howViewpoints=1
Five reviews so far: 4/5 were 5-star, and 1/5 was 4 star

http://www.amazon.com/Courage-Heal-Workbook-Survivors-Sexual/dp/0060964375/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top
Forty one reviews so far: 31/41 were 5 star (for men and women)

Again, I haven't read the above, so I encourage you to read the reviews of these and other available books on Amazon to see if you think they would apply to your particular situation.
