Adult Survivor of Childhood Sexual Abuse-Part III

In Part III of this series, I illustrate how childhood sexual abuse affects the growth of a child. Using Maslow’s Hierarchy of Need and the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) pyramids, I provide a visual to the ‘how’ of the effects. And of course I use my poetry to drive home the point and the pain.

If you are a victim of sexual assault, help is available right now. You can contact the Crisis Text Line at 741741 and someone will be available to help. If you prefer to talk to a person, the National Sexual Assault Hotline can be reached by calling 800.656.4673.

You are not alone.
