Link to Lesley's blog
Another excellent post from one of my favourite blogs. Rev Lesley has written on several occasions about sexual and emotional abuse. Here she gives her thoughts on the lifelong consequences of childhood trauma. We are much more focused as a society on "stranger danger" and child protection as it pertains to official places and institutions, we are conveniently quiet about the fact that the majority of abuse occurs within the family, we forget that it is not just a tragedy in childhood, but also a blight throughout adulthood.
