The effects of abuse aren’t just physical and can last a lifetime.
Wesley Hogue is a featured survivor in Stewards of Children® and is committed to preventing child sexual abuse and protecting children. This April, he’s teamed up with Darkness to Light again to share more about how sexual abuse impacted his life, both as a child when the abuse occurred and as an adult to this day.
In his final video for Child Abuse Awareness Month, Wesley explains the social impact that abuse has had on his life, both after disclosure of the abuse and today.
If you haven’t already, consider completing the Stewards of Children® prevention training. The only adult child sexual abuse prevention proven to change protective behaviors, Stewards of Children® uses real people and real stories to show you how to protect children. You’ll meet experts and survivors, like Wesley, who lived through child sexual abuse, experienced its immediate and long-term effects, and ultimately were able to find healing.
