Supporting Male Survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse

Trust Badges

At Core Psychotherapy Center, Ltd. in Illinois, we extend a compassionate hand to adult male survivors of childhood sexual abuse through our specialized support group. Because we understand the profound and often complex journey of acknowledging and addressing the impact of sexual abuse, we offer a safe space for healing and growth.


Acknowledgment and Validation

We recognize the unique challenges faced by men in processing the aftermath of sexual abuse, including shame, humiliation, anger, confusion, and fear. Our group provides a non-judgmental environment where survivors can openly share their experiences and feelings, fostering a sense of validation and understanding.

Education and Awareness

Through psychoeducation, participants gain insights into the far-reaching effects of sexual trauma on their mental, emotional, and relational well-being. Understanding the dynamics of abuse empowers survivors to make sense of their experiences and navigate their healing journey with greater clarity and self-compassion.

Exploration and Connection

In the supportive company of fellow survivors, individuals are encouraged to explore the connections between their past trauma and present-day behaviors, beliefs, relationships, and emotions. Through guided exercises and discussions, they uncover patterns, triggers, and coping mechanisms, paving the way for deeper self-awareness and healing.
