Abuse touches all walks of life, from children to the elderly. Survivors of abuse often find themselves dealing with serious psychological (and sometimes physical) consequences from their experience: low self-esteem, difficulty forming and keeping intimate relationships, sexual issues, anger issues, depression, anxiety, trust issues, post traumatic stress, difficulties with sleep, difficulties with weight, to name a few.
Abuse can take on many different forms, including physical, sexual, emotional, verbal, and neglect. It can occur in many different environments, from the home (incest, domestic violence, rape) to institutions and the workplace (bullying of kids, elder abuse, sexual harassent) and even religious or community settings (hate crimes).
