The Unbearable Secret: Sexual Abuse
One in 10 young people will be sexually abused by 18 and there are 60 million adult survivors in the U.S. today. Nanette Kirsch shares insights she gathered in researching and writing her new book, Denial: Abuse, Addiction and a Life Derailed. In this workshop she’ll talk about why sexual abuse often leads to devastating, lifelong effects on victims including relational brokenness, substance abuse, sexual addictions and suicide, among others.
Come and learn how you can be part of bringing light to the darkness surrounding sexual abuse, whether you’re a survivor, you love someone who is, or you simply care about this issue and its high societal cost.
Crossroads' Truth & Grace Ministry will talk about the support they offer survivors.
