Sexual abuse To talk about sexual abuse, there must be sexual activity between two or more people without consent . In these cases, if you do not go to a specialist to help overcome the abuse, serious consequences can be generated.

The emotional impact and the ability to overcome sexual abuse is related to: the profile of the victim (age, sex, family context …); the characteristics of the abusive act (frequency, severity, violence, threats …); the relationship with the abuser and the consequences of discovering the abuse.



Not all sexual victims react the same. However, there are many risk factors to trigger emotional problems. Some of them would be: post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, anxiety, sleep disorders or sexual disorders.

The main thing to overcome sexual abuse is to tell. Many times because we did not ask for help at the time, we could not do anything or even because we got excited, we can feel a great guilt and shame. Also, social and family support are aspects that help overcome the problem, if the answer is positive.

We may be afraid to remember the past, but the way to be able to be emotionally well often is to face it. Overcoming sexual abuse is possible. If you consider that you have been the victim of a sexual assault, it is advisable to seek the help of a specialist.
