Additional info for Counselling Adult Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse
Although child sexual abusers vary enormously, they share many commonalities. The majority of child sexual abusers are highly skilled at identifying vulnerable victims, whom they target specifically. This skill is intuitive to some degree, but it also comes through practice and experience. Abusers can identify with children, often more so than most adults, allowing them to become master seducers of children. They have an excessive interest in children, although this is not always manifested overtly.
Counsellors need to guard against imposing their own definitions of survivors’ experiences, but they may encourage survivors to explore any cognitive distortions, especially concerning how consensual the experience was. The issue of consent is important. Many children are deceived by abusers into thinking that they wanted to develop the special friendship into a sexual relationship and that the abuser merely complied with the child’s desire. Counsellors may need to remind survivors that children are not able to give informed consent under the legal age and in the absence of full knowledge of the meaning and ramifications of such behaviour.
CSA can also shatter the sense of self (see Chapter 9) and lead to the adoption of an alien or imposed identity that replaces the authentic self, leading to a sense of alienation, invisibility, disconnection from self and others, and existential angst. The shame associated with CSA can lead to a sense of defilement in which the survivor needs to hide away and isolate him- or herself. This compounds the survivor’s sense of alienation and creates further relational difficulties as he or she withdraws from others.
