Sexual trauma happens more often than you realize.
Sexual trauma can occur in childhood, adulthood and even in the elderly. It may also occur in the workplace. People often associate sexual abuse with physical contact, like rape or sexual assault. But it can also involve verbal and emotional abuse as well.
Many people who have been sexually abused feel that a major piece of their spirit has been robbed. These individuals may pick up addictions and other self-destructive behavior such as binge eating and alcoholism to help them cope with their past.
