Comforting the Sexual Abuse Victim
Written By: Sydna Masse
Comforting the Sexual Abuse Victim was written specifically for those who may minister to these hearts when they are considering abortion as well as during abortion recovery ministry sessions. This resource outlines the basic mindset and thinking patterns of the sexual abuse victim, a detailed way to listen and cope with these confessions, and much more.
It has been estimated that over 85% of women choosing abortion have previously experienced sexual abuse. While these statistics are alarming, it’s important to understand how sexual abuse can impact abortion vulnerable and decision-making processes in the future.
Sydna Masse offers basic information on understanding reporting laws, how to listen to difficult stories, behavioral signs (body language, eye contact) that can signal past sexual abuse, how to interact with wounded hearts and providing compassion to sexual abuse victims.
Comforting the Sexual Abuse Victim also offers specific ways to minister to these hearts by providing them a way to find wholeness and healing through Christ. This is an excellent resource for anyone working with individuals who may have been sexually abused, particularly in pregnancy center and churches.
