In this support group, we talk with the Just for Kids Child Advocacy Center in West Virginia about their plans to start a parent support group. We discuss things to consider when deciding whether to segregate groups by type of abuse or offer a combined group. We also discuss overcoming the culture of generational abuse and the challenges in supporting parents when they are also sexual abuse survivors. And we spend some time talking about how to challenge a parent's unhealthy thinking, words, or behaviors without judgment and shame so they can continue to stay present and receive the value of a different perspective.
