Therapy 
Many victims of sexual assault or abuse find that they can benefit from therapy.  Many times, friends and family members can also benefit from therapy.  We offer the following types of therapy:

  • Individual Therapy  --  to assist the victim in coping with fears, anger, shame, and feelings of being powerless
  • Couples Therapy  --  to assist the couple in coping with their anxieties, fears, and anger.  we will also work with the couple to reestablish and reaffirm their relationship.
  • Family Therapy  --  to assist family members in coping with their own feelings as well as assist them in their desire to be helpful to the victim.

To schedule an appointment, call one of our local centers and ask for a Victims Services Therapist.

   

Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT)

TF-CBT is an evidence based type of therapy that assists children and youth who have been affected by different types of traumatic events.  It requires that both the child and the caregiver be actively involved in therapy and ideally appointments are weekly.  For more information, contact our Corbin or Williamsburg offices.

Advocacy Services

Legal Advocacy

When the victim of a sexual assault decides to prosecute, emotional support is often needed.  Staff is available to support victims through the legal process.
We provide emotional preparation for trial and accompaniment to court.  Appropriate referrals to other court advocates may be made.  Prosecution can decrease the number of future sexual assaults, but has to be the victim's decision.

Medical Advocacy

When a victim of sexual assault arrives at the hospital, support is often needed.  We provide information to the victim and explain the sexual assault forensic exam.

Education Programs

We believe that education/primary prevention plays a key role in protecting people in our communities from sexual violence.  We provide free sexual assault and other related prevention programs.  For more information, see the tab labeled Education Programs or contact the educator at (606) 528-5286.
