  • Child sexual abuse – how parents cope

    Nothing can prepare a parent for the discovery that their child has been sexually abused. Many find themselves thrown into a situation that they have no idea how to handle, and struggle to cope with their own devastation as well as being unsure how best to help their child start to recover. Julia Webb-Harvey worked as a volunteer for Mosac, a charity that supports non-abusing parents in this situation, and has written a book about some of their experiences. She talks to Jane along with Consultant Child Psychiatrist Eileen Vizard about how parents can best help their child and their family overcome the trauma of sexual abuse. Jane also talks to Lauren, whose daughters were sexually abused by her former partner.
    Hurt, by Julia Webb-Harvey, is published by Live It Publishing
