Childhood Sexual Abuse & PTSD

According to the CDC, 1 in 3 female rape victims experienced it for the first time between the ages of 11-17. 1 out of 8 of these victims report experiencing sexual abuse before the age of 10. Childhood sexual abuse is an adverse childhood experience that can impact how a person thinks, acts, and feels throughout their entire lifetime. At Charis Behavioral Health, evidence-based treatment models are used to intervene and reduce symptoms of PTSD.
