A Place to Grow
Gina Weiss is the author of the article "A Place to Grow" and believes sexual abuse of children is an issue in the collective consciousness of society, and it will remain so until enough healing has occurred to stem the tide of abuse. She suggests that as more survivors and perpetrators of abuse are healed, the overall level of denial in the collective consciousness will be reduced. Thereby paving the way for faster healing in the future such that at some point, there will be no more abuse.

Childhood and Adult Sexual Victimization - Living in the Aftermath
Sexually traumatized children and adults can feel stripped of their dignity and sense of control, and often reenact in feeling, thinking, and behavior the dissociated imprints of horrific, and loathsome memories. These and other untoward effects can encroach upon all spheres of a victim's existence- their bodies, minds, emotions, faith-based values, relationships, and cultural values.
