No one’s heart bleeds more than a mother’s over their child’s pain.
In just past few of decades, much work has been done to increase awareness of child sex abuse and provide support for victims. However, it’s important to remember that the mothers of these victims are an essential part of that healing process. Next to the victims, many of the mothers are horrifically scarred by shame, guilt, fear, regret, and other emotional wounds.
In her book Mothers of Molestation Survivors, Kim Johnson shares a collection of incredibly helpful action plans that mothers can take to help heal the trauma of this horrific experience. Johnson is a licensed clinical social worker who has spent years helping families of sex abuse incidents. She has interviewed countless mothers of victims of molestations and works with a wide network of therapists.
Mothers of Molestation Survivors is divided into distinct halves. The first half represent mothers who gave poor responses to these abuses (such as Protective, Overprotective and Unprotective Mothers). The second half show the better, healthier alternatives (the Educated, Resourceful and Spiritual Mothers). Readers will also tackle a number of myths regarding sex abuse that still persist, as well as further resources on how to support the assisting victims of child sex abuse.
