This a concept that helps the adult self care for and nurture the child portion of the self after childhood sexual abuse (or domestic violence experienced in childhood) has
taken place. During these session the therapist works closely with the clients on identifying past abuses, acknowledging and understanding current behaviors, stemming
from childhood abuse and nurturing the child portion of the self, that was not nurtured appropriately.
When the adult is able to take care of the younger part of the self, the child portion is free to be the child be he or she knows that it cared for by the adult portion, so less
inappropriate behaviors are acted out by the child portion because it feels safe. If this sounds like something you would like to know more about please feel free to let
know during the time of your appointment!
