Girls ages 5-17. For female children & adolescents who are victims of abuse. Children will learn the effects of abuse, posttraumatic stress disorder symptoms, and “trigger” responses that occur as a result of abuse; realize that they are not responsible for the abuse, and know appropriate future actions to avoid predators. They will be able to approach the abuse memories in a safe, supportive environment, and participate in activities designed to encourage healing and positive resolution of the abuse experience. Finally, children will develop strategies to deal with future trigger responses, and experience an increased sense of self-esteem and self-efficacy as a result of practicing positive coping skills.
