How can parents and church ministries prevent sexual abuse from happening to their children and youth?

How can victims experience healing and wholeness?

Sexual abuse is a systemic issue in every country today– and some experts say one in two women and one in three men have been victims of this trauma. Due to the effects of pornography, children and teens are often sexually abused by older children and teens – not only adults. The Body of Christ generally has avoided addressing this issue as it is an uncomfortable topic that can trigger feelings of shame and guilt. This silence has often left multitudes of God’s people silent and alone in their brokenness. Yet, the Lord’s passion is to bring healing and restoration from all trauma and pain! This course will equip you as a friend, leader, parent, and a minister of hope to not only understand sexual abuse, but also know how to be a safe place of healing for victims. If you are a victim, this course will empower you with powerful insights and resources to support you in your healing journey. You will hear real stories of God’s transformative power as well as rich guidance from experts in the field whose life work is to support victims of sexual abuse.
