Answer: Unfortunately, many sexual abuse victims are not able to connect the emotional and psychological difficulties they experience in adulthood to the sexual abuse they suffered as a child. Making that connection is often the first step in a process of healing. Additionally, many abuse victims cannot afford the medical and psychological help necessary to overcome the harm done to them as a child.
