What Are The Effects of Sexual Abuse?

Some of the most common symptoms experienced after sexual abuse and assault include:

  • Anxiety and depression: Victims of sexual abuse often experience persistent feelings of fear, anxiety, and sadness, which can lead to depression and other mood disorders.
  • Low self-esteem and self-blame: Survivors of sexual abuse may struggle with feelings of worthlessness, shame, and guilt, leading to a negative self-image and self-blame for the abuse.
  • Relationship difficulties: Sexual abuse can impact trust and intimacy in relationships, leading to difficulties forming and maintaining healthy relationships.
  • Substance abuse: Some individuals may turn to alcohol or drugs as a way to cope with the emotional pain and trauma associated with sexual abuse.
  • Sexual dysfunction: Survivors may experience difficulties with sexual intimacy, including decreased libido, pain during intercourse, and difficulty experiencing pleasure.
  • Self-harm and suicidal thoughts: Victims of sexual abuse may engage in self-destructive behaviors such as self-harm or have suicidal thoughts as a way to cope with overwhelming emotions and trauma.

How Can Thriveworks Help?

Our Thriveworks Houston, TX team does not design sexual abuse therapy like a ‘one size fits all’ program – rather, we will work closely with you to find exactly the right combination of treatments and counseling options that will help you get back on track. Some of the most common treatments for sexual abuse and assault include:

  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT): This therapy helps individuals recognize and challenge negative thought patterns and beliefs related to the abuse, as well as develop coping skills to manage distressing emotions and triggers.
  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR): EMDR is a specialized therapy that focuses on processing traumatic memories and reducing the emotional distress associated with them through bilateral stimulation.
  • Trauma-focused therapy: This approach specifically addresses the impact of trauma on the individual’s thoughts, emotions, and behaviors, helping them process and integrate the traumatic experience in a safe and supportive environment.
  • Support groups: Participating in support groups with other survivors of sexual abuse can provide validation, connection, and peer support, reducing feelings of isolation and shame.
  • Art therapy: Art therapy allows individuals to express and explore their emotions and experiences related to the abuse through creative expression, providing a non-verbal outlet for processing trauma.
  • Mindfulness-based therapy: Practices such as mindfulness meditation and relaxation techniques can help individuals develop greater awareness of their emotions and sensations, as well as cultivate skills for self-regulation and stress reduction.

Thriveworks helped me realize that I do believe people can change. I’m not the person I was three months ago, broken and fearful. I’m healthy and happy and for the first time being kind to myself. Thank you for giving me my life back.
