Training Overview Description

Approximately 22 million mothers in the U.S. have a history of child sexual abuse (CSA). This workshop will reveal the pain and triumphs of mothering as a survivor by examining the therapeutic needs and concerns of mothers who have survived CSA. The presenter will synthesize the related scholarly literature, her own research, and 25 years of experience as a psychotherapist working with survivor moms. The workshop will name and examine the protective factors that have helped successful mothers to overcome their negative childhood experiences and protect their children from the abuse they experienced.

Learning Objectives*

  • Participants will be able to describe the risk factors and long-term effects of abuse, including mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, addictions, and low self-worth.
  • Participants will be able to analyze the protective factors in mothers’ lives that support resiliency and their capacity to mother their children in healthy and appropriate ways.
  • Participants will be able to summarize the dynamics that facilitate the intergenerational transmission of abuse and the re-victimization of abuse.
