In the UK alone, according to a 2000 study by the NSPCC, one in 6 children will experience some form of sexual abuse by the age of 16. 8 out of 10 children abused know their abuser. In the USA, a person is sexually assaulted every 98 seconds.
Many abusers are family members, friends, or people in positions of trust; many are well-known and respected by the victims’ family.
Jean Dobson courageously speaks out abuse her multiple experiences of sexual abuse, beginning from when she was a young girl and continuing through her early adult years.
Rather than being stigmatized by it, she has found healing, hope and restoration–but it certainly has not been an easy journey. She’s now in a place where she can help other sexual abuse victims.
Don’t miss this episode–this is a powerful and compelling story that needs to be experienced.
