I just came to this community. I am seeking help for my nephew. He is an adult survivor of sexual abuse. I am seeking info to help him. He is very depressed and has never dealt with what happened to him. I wonder if anyone can direct me to books or anything that can help. He refuses to seek counseling and I am not sure what to do.View Thread
thank you. I know he is not ready, but thank you for the resources. I want them in hopes he will someday want the help. It is difficult to see the pain and hopelessness, but I have to hold on to hope that he will someday face this and be able to cope.View Thread
