SAN DIEGO, Oct. 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists cautioned todaythat intense news coverage of sexual assault and harassment cases, including the Supreme Court hearings and the imprisonment of comedian Bill Cosby could trigger significant emotions and unpleasant memories for some. Anyone who is experiencing difficulty is urged to see a therapist.
Recovering from sexual trauma takes time, and the healing process can be painful. When survivors are able to share their story with sympathetic loved ones, they can feel supported and empowered to move forward. With the right strategies and support from a therapist, survivors can find strength to move past the trauma, rebuild a sense of control and self-worth, and come out feeling stronger and more resilient.
