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.

soolee,

Thanks for the information. I'll start there. Someone I know needs these resources. wink

Part of getting to a healthy marriage, right?
