In this article, Cecelia Bernhardt offers guidance to counselors working with adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse. She describes how to help these women and men reframe their abuse so they can see it as a chapter in their life story rather than as the overriding theme. This frees them to pursue healing and growth now as their life story continues to unfold. Bernhardt’s extensive experience with survivors and her passion for helping them make this article a must-read.
