Raising the Issue of Sexual Abuse

January 30, 2014

    Bravo, Gary, I couldn’t agree more! My specialization is working with children and families where there has been sexual abuse, and I have had very similar experiences to yours and approach the topic in much the same way. Thanks for shining a light on this!
