Services: Trauma Recovery Abuse
There are many forms of abuse that people can experience in their lifetimes. Some of the kinds of abuse that people experience put them at risk of becoming abusive themselves to the people around them. This is one good reason for dealing with the results of abuse in one's own life. We know these things not only because of our training and professional experience but also because we have been abused ourselves in various ways.
Chronic Illness and/or Disability
It is easy to believe that you are not a valuable, whole person when you are dealing with circumstances that limit your ability to live a life that looks like the lives around you. You can begin to see yourself as being a second class person, especially when others intentionally or unintentionally reinforce that viewpoint.
