Unwanted or abusive sexual experiences in childhood can have many effects, well into adulthood.

This section has general information – and some cautions – for understanding the potential effects of such experiences and making sense of their complexity.

Much of what is covered is not obvious, and reflecting on these issues can be very helpful, especially at the beginning of sorting things out.

As always, remember to pace yourself, take what works for you and leave the rest.
