Push Back the Dark
Childhood sexual abuse creates damages that endure into adulthood. Organizations centered on faith – synagogues, mosques, churches – have sometimes been the source of abuse. But faith organizations can also provide caring ministries for emotional, social, and physical health among adult survivors. This book is written for faith communities to provide specific tools for companioning, meaning making, and caring. Psychoeducation about childhood sexual abuse and its effects anchors the tools for ministry.
