Working with Sexual Abuse 

Day 1-Counselling adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse

Day 2-The impact of sibling abuse and Male Survivors





Day one 

Day two 

9.30am to 4.30pm (6 hours CPD per day)


Counselling survivors can sometimes feel overwhelming for both client and Counsellor. Many survivors seek counselling and have a focus which is entirely different than their abuse and can be reluctant to disclose their experiences.
As well as developing the skills and competencies to meet the needs of the survivor effectively, it is important for the counsellor to be aware of their own attitudes and beliefs regarding childhood sexual abuse.

a.Define what is sexual abuse


b.Look at the impact of child sexual abuse


c.Identify significant healing processess and counselling interventions to enable resolution while recognising there are significant differences between abuse experience


d.Ethical issues related to counselling survivors of sexual abuse​




The impact of sexual abuse is often generalised and mainly focussed on female survivors.This day will focus on two areas:


a.the challenges facing adult survivors of sibling abuse and the possible impact on the family system


b.male survivors of sexual abuse which has historically been under reported
