Wellness For The Real World – PREDATORS AMONG US: HOW TO CURE SEX ABUSE

Play

It is difficult enough for each of us to grow into a happy, productive adult with relationships that fulfill us personally and sexually. But children who were sexually abused have an even tougher path: they often face lifelong issues with intimacy, trust, shame and anger and are much more likely to become abusers themselves. Yet we as a society remain uncomfortable talking about the subject. Guest Brian Beckstead, raised in a Mormon household, tells his story and Dr. Nancy Irwin, sex abuse counsellor, shares surprising information about who sex abusers are and how they can be helped.
